Hemp and Kenaf Paper Products Save Trees and Our Planet
Excerpt:
"However, after generations of relying on trees as the primary ingredient for paper, we are paying a huge price that is having an enormous impact on the health of our planet. We need another resource, and hemp and kenaf could be the answer.
[...]
Tree pulp is not an optimal material for paper making. An elaborate series of steps is necessary to mechanically and chemically break down the rigid source material into usable pulp, and further processes are needed to render it white and smooth enough for printing. Non-tree sources such as kenaf, hemp and recycled rags are optimal materials for making paper."

Written by the producers of materials made of hemp. ;p

Also it raises questions regarding food security, if crop land is being used to substitute forest.

Maybe hemp can be interforested (planted in between)?
