What if plastic could be made without using fossil fuels and toxic chemicals?
An Australian company has done just that, with a new type of plastic that can turn hemp fiber into pretty much anything.
Zeoform is a promising eco-friendly solution to traditional plastics. It’s made from a simple mixture of plant fiber (specifically cellulose) and water.
What’s more, unlike plastic, Zeoform is compostable.
Hemp, along with flax and straw, are ideal for making Zeoform because of their high cellulose content. But it can be made from recycled paper and textiles too.
