Peeps are saying that greens want a "hair shirt" economy.
By no means!
Our slogan should be:
Hemp shirts not Hair shirts!
Hemp shirt economics implies low energy and better sustainability when compared both to hair shirt (animal derived, therefore inefficient) and cotton shirts (high demand for water and pesticides). As for nylon shirts - fergeddit!
Hemp is comfortable, warm, flexible, sustainable, and also has a slightly crumpled and used look.
Just the job.
