Unveiling the Green Revolution: Enrich Your Garden with Hemp Fibre

The sustainable movement is more than just a passing fad – it’s a lifestyle choice that’s steadily permeating our everyday routines, and gardening is no exception. If you’re looking to add an environmentally friendly touch to your garden, the introduction of hemp fibre can be truly transformative. As we strive towards a greener future, it’s crucial to recognize how small decisions like using hemp fibre can create substantial, enduring changes. This article explores the advantages of integrating hemp fibre into your garden for the benefit of the environment, your plants, and your gardening experience.

Breathing Life into the Planet

In our contemporary society, there’s an escalating consciousness about the consequences of our actions on the environment. Enter hemp fibre – a renewable and biodegradable resource that empowers gardeners to cultivate while caring for the Earth. In contrast to conventional gardening materials such as plastic or petroleum-based products, hemp fibre significantly reduces the carbon footprint of your garden. It serves as a quiet but potent ally in the battle against pollution as it decomposes, returning essential nutrients to the soil. By leveraging the potential of hemp fibre, you’re not merely gardening; you’re actively contributing to sustainability.

The Multifaceted Nature of Hemp Fibre

The range of applications for hemp fibre matches the breadth of its benefits. From germinating seeds and growing microgreens with items like Terrafibre’s hemp growing cubes, to stabilizing soil with erosion mats and controlling weeds with suppression mats, the eco-friendly possibilities are boundless. It’s not just a green alternative; it often outperforms traditional options.

Fostering Growth from the Roots

Organic gardening and natural growth can sometimes seem challenging, especially when typical gardening materials can sometimes be counterproductive. The beauty of hemp fibre lies not only in its environmentally-friendly properties, but also in how it promotes healthy plant growth and improves the conditions for root development.

Hemp Cubes vs Rockwool: A Battle for Growth

When it comes to seed starting and cloning, choosing a medium that supports the plant and promotes robust and healthy roots is vital. Hemp growing cubes from Terrafibre, in comparison to the commonly used rockwool, provide a more natural and beneficial environment for plants. They offer excellent aeration and water retention, giving your young plants the best possible start in life.

Unveiling the Power of Hemp: A Green Solution for Soil Erosion and More

For garden enthusiasts grappling with soil erosion issues, one green solution is making a difference. Hemp erosion mats, an eco-friendly alternative, are proving to be a game-changer in preventing soil loss during water events and larger environmental shifts. These mats also offer an optimal base for vegetation to take root, providing a secure anchor against the elements.

A New Approach to Weed Control

The battle against unwanted growth in gardens has been long-standing. Traditional methods of weed suppression often involve harmful chemicals or non-biodegradable plastics. Enter hemp fibre weed suppression mats – a solution that not only reduces maintenance efforts but does so without leaving a damaging ecological footprint. Its porous nature naturally restrains weed growth while offering your plants the breathability and space they need to thrive.

Going Green Can Also Mean Saving Green

Sustainability often goes hand-in-hand with cost savings. Transitioning to hemp fibre products in your garden can lead to a decrease in long-term expenses. While the initial outlay might seem steeper than regular products, the durability and performance of hemp fibre often extend beyond a single growing season, saving you money and the inconvenience of frequent replacements.

Durability at its Best with Hemp Fibre

Hemp fibre is renowned for its remarkable strength and longevity. Products like Terrafibre’s hemp growing cubes can endure multiple growing seasons with proper care, outlasting their synthetic counterparts. Moreover, their weed suppression mats exhibit even greater resistance to the elements, ensuring a longer lifespan.

Minimizing Waste, Maximizing Efficiency

Hemp fibre stands out with its unique capability to reduce usage and waste. Thanks to its durability and the option to recycle or compost it at the end of its lifecycle, you’re investing in a material that minimizes environmental impact while optimizing efficiency.

Planting the Seeds of Sustainability

Sustainability isn’t a one-off deed – it’s a sequence of small decisions that collectively lead to significant change. Starting from the seeds you sow to the products you use for their growth, every choice brings us a step closer to a more sustainable world. Hemp fibre products not only aid gardens to flourish but also contribute to the larger narrative of environmental protection.

Your Green Thumb Guide

If sustainability defines your ethos and gardening is your passion, it’s time to incorporate hemp fibre products into your gardening arsenal. Discover the myriad applications and benefits of hemp fibre and watch as your garden – and your commitment to the planet – flourishes.

Hemp fibre has established its presence, and as it continues to grow, so does our comprehension of its boundless potential – for both the environment and gardening. Whether you’re an urban microgreen aficionado or a homesteader with extensive land, incorporating hemp fibre into your gardening routine symbolizes a thoughtful step towards a greener future.

In a world teeming with choices, why not pick the one that benefits both you and the environment? With hemp fibre, you’re not just nurturing your garden – you’re fostering a more sustainable lifestyle, one that future generations will appreciate.

Hemp Pet Product Kitty Litter

Wanting to try Terrafibre Hemp Kitty Litter … but not sure if your feline friend will adapt?

Wanting to try Terrafibre Hemp Kitty Litter … but not sure if your feline friend will adapt? They are fussy & peculiar critters, aren’t they?!

Traditional brands contain long ingredient lists that can be difficult to access. These lists include ingredients classified as both fillers and preservatives, items often avoided by eco-friendly, health-conscious, and price sensitive customers. 

Traditional litter brands use chemicals such as crystalline silica, a known carcinogen for both humans and pets, and sodium bentonite, which can lead to pet respiratory problems. 

Brands that have produced animal bedding from wood shavings, paper, sawdust, and straw are dominant forces in the pet market. However, while these products are natural, they are not sustainable, as forests take 65+ years to be regrown – while hemp crops can be regrown yearly. 

Furthermore, wood shaving products, particularly softwood cedar and pine, contain phenols which are known to affect pet liver function and have potentially carcinogenic effects on pet health.

Terrafibre Hemp Kitty Litter provides these benefits and are available in 5 or 10 pound bags:

  – Superior Pet and Pet-Owner Health: Free of chemicals, dust, phenols, and fillers

  – Eco-Friendly: 100% biodegradable, compostable, and sustainable

  – Easy Clean-Up: Quickly absorbs and holds onto messes and odours

  – Economic: Up to 4X lighter than traditional kitty litters

HEMP DECORTICATOR NOW *IN OPERATION*

NEW HEMP DECORTICATOR IN OPERATION IN ALBERTA, CANADA

The BCG hemp decorticator is NOW FULLY OPERATIONAL and a variety of exciting new products are now available for sale. We will also sell bulk hemp hurd, so please contact us for more information/costs if you’re interested in a large-scale hurd purchase. 

Hemp is known for being one of the strongest natural fibres on earth. A hemp stalk is nearly impossible to break down with traditional farm equipment. Decorticating is the first step in hemp fibre processing. The machine used for decorticating is called a “decorticator”. The decorticating process for hemp removes the tough woody interior (the hurd), from the fibrous exterior of the stalk (the bast); it is necessary to create value added products from the entire hemp stalk.

Until now, there was no operational decortication facilities in Alberta. This was of great concern for the well established hemp fibre companies in Alberta and across Canada. The lack of decortication created a large bottle-neck in the industry and slowed any major advancements in the hemp fibre value chain.

This Decorticator will continue BCG’s goal of rural revitalization and escalate the growth of the “hemp fibre hub” in Drayton Valley, AB. The hemp fibre hub supports farmers growing hemp as a rotational crop, creates full-time local jobs and indirect opportunities, continued fibre hemp processing, manufacturing and new product creation.

BioComposites Group Inc. (BCG) is a world leader in the development of innovative natural fibre products to create an ever-expanding range of products, operates the largest hemp processor in North America.
