Hemp and the EcoRevolution: Is Hemp the Next Big Sustainability Solution?
Sustainability in hemp farming is deeply connected to climate issues. If farmers are struggling with droughts or floods, it’s impossible for them to lead profitable long-term operations.
Steven Gluckstern, CEO of Santa Fe Farms, sat down with Brando Crespi, co-founder and Executive Vice Chair at Pro Natura, to talk about Crespi’s career as a cultural anthropologist, an environmentalist, and Giorgio Armani’s partner in developing an eco-jean line based on hemp fiber.
“The people I’ve met in the hemp business have been anxious to try to figure out how to develop a business that is sustainable. We’re asking, ‘How do we increase long-term income for people while improving their overall well being?’ That’s my definition of sustainability.” – Brando Crespi
