Why Hemp?

Excess carbon in the atmosphere has been linked to increased global temperatures. Hemp is a carbon fighting machine in this space and is known to be a heavy lifter in absorbing carbon. Hemp absorbs more carbon than many other plants.

Hemp yarn has been used in rope for hundreds of years due to its strength.  It’s a great textile for the slow fashion and sneaker industries, as it won’t stretch out of shape and is incredibly strong. Stronger yarn in fashion products means longer lasting pieces of clothing or shoes.

Hemp is more than its stigma: it is a carbon fighting machine that is the perfect solution to a more sustainable shoe industry. The shoe industry typically uses heavily synthetic materials that are damaging to our planet and wallets. 

With shoes a necessity for work and play, BLAC Sneaker’s aim is to get more people moving in shoes that are better for the environment. More people in hemp sneakers or in fashionwear  increases awareness of these issues.
