We're on
a mission

to shake up the plastics industry with biodegradable alternatives
We are leading the way to a greener future with the development and distribution of premium earth-friendly polymers.

We at The Hemp Plastic Company are invested in resolving one of the world’s biggest problems. There’s no escaping polymers, they’ve infiltrated every aspect of our lives. Yet, we are no longer beholden to petroleum-based materials. There are biodegradable plastic alternatives that resolve the plastic issue for good. Our bioplastics offer a game-changing solution to manufacturers who wish to continue producing the same low cost products without harming our planet.

It’s our mission to help migrate fossil fuel based plastic manufactures to our far greener option, and in doing so, continue to grow as the largest Hemp Plastic manufacturer in the world. We aim to serve our planet, investors, clients and dedicated team through the development and distribution of premium eco-friendly polymer solutions. We are uniquely positioned to leverage a more inviting regulatory environment, technology, supply and our own marketing expertise. Our intent is to raise awareness and offer comparably-priced polymer alternatives which will revolutionize this industry. If the prices and properties are competitive, it’s our experience that the market will readily adopt hemp-based biodegradable plastics. We have built our company on this premise.
