Hemp is one of the most environmentally friendly plants on earth. One of the oldest sustainable crops, it grows in just 4 months from planting and does not need any pesticides or herbicides. Hemp is really good at giving our trees a helping hand as it is very effective at capturing CO2 from the air (1m2 of hemp breathes in the same amount of CO2 as 1m2 of forest) and every bit of the plant can be used - the seed for healthy food and the stalk for natural fibre and eco-building materials. So the CO2 is locked and there is a net CO2 benefit.
Every 800 bottles of Good Oil produced leaves enough hemp straw to build an entire eco-house. This amount of straw locks a net gain of 7.5 tonnes of CO2 - more than the annual CO2 produced by the average UK household. Producing just a single bottle of Good Oil requires enough straw to lock the equivalent CO2 produced by an average 40 mile car journey.
