    Hemp plastic anyone?

    after all, it's both recyclable and biodegradable.

    Hemp plastic is a composite material made of hemp fibre, which can be used to replace oil-based raw materials. Hemp plastic was designed in Europe over a period of 15 years, and is now primarily produced in China. However, hemp plastic was invented much earlier, since even Henry Ford designed and then produced a hemp plastic car in 1940. The hemp plastic material was said to be "ten times stronger than steel".
