Hemp is Good
Wanna know why? When hemp is planted, harvested, and produced right, it is super eco-friendly. It takes a significantly less harmful toll on the earth compared to some of our top favorite fabrics, such as cotton. Cotton uses 95% MORE PESTICIDES, 50% MORE WATER, and yields only 1/4 of the amount of hemp harvested when grown on the same sized plot of land. Do you see the difference? What a difference we could make in the world if only we had someone creating fashionable hemp clothing pieces…
DOH! There’s Bohempia! At the time I’m writing this, their major Kickstarter campaign has already received DOUBLE the amount they asked for. There’s one day left, and I have a feeling some of you are going to join those who donated because, LOOK AT THEIR SHOES! They’re so casual, yet so trendy. Whether you have funky feet, or not, you can’t help but appreciate the benefits of a shoe full of hemp fabric.
Classic + Casual Designs
Bohempia creates classic sneaker and slide on silhouettes that anyone will love. I can’t decide if I like the bold or neutral colors most, but I love that they provide both options. Their natural hemp fiber design makes them comfortable, as well, because they are lightweight and breathable. Not to mention, sustainable designs are what’s hot in style now. You can view some of my other favorite conscious brands all across the blog. But first, check out these sweet hemp sneakers by Bohempia.
I love sharing new eco-friendly inventions with y’all, and hemp shoes have been one of the coolest things I’ve seen so far. I hope y’all enjoyed learning about them as much as I did. Let’s take the fashion world by storm and make it sustainable, fair, and accessible for all!
