As the country moves closer towards hemp clothing mainstream, there are plenty of options for those of us looking for hemp clothes. hemp clothes are available for men, women, teens and children.
While there are some issues surrounding hemp clothing, the benefits far outstrip any fears or misgivings one may have. In fact, the benefits of this exciting crop for the Yoga Studio far outweigh any potential problems it may encounter. First of all, hemp Yoga clothing is a completely natural, renewable resource. Secondly, hemp clothing doesn’t contribute to the ongoing environmental pollution or the resource depletion that other products do – and as Yoga freaks we love this don’t we? Lastly, hemp clothing uses production practices that use less water, energy and pesticides than traditional cotton production, which is ultimately good for the soil and our health.
