#7 – Alternative to Plastic
Cellulose is a major component of plastic and hemp contains the highest cellulose content of all plants. In fact, Henry Ford first used hemp in the production of a car prototype and today car parts made entirely of hemp materials are available. Hemp material is as strong as fiberglass, is highly heat resistant, and flame retardant. It is also recyclable and eco-friendly, making it a great plastic alternative for things like the interiors of car doors and glove compartments.
