Just some thoughts for the day….

More & more people are becoming aware of the detrimental effects our actions have on our well being state of mind & the planet as a whole. As with anything there are two sides to this coin, once recognized we have the ability to change and effect this towards the betterment. Your spending habits and the products you purchase help finance and support the corporations who produce the products you buy. Pretty basic huh? Well you are also financing and supporting the corporations nefarious bids and interest as well. The main commodities we use in almost everything; paper and plastic
We are all aware what it takes to acquire oil and timber. The oil industry has wrecked untold havoc on the planet at large. You can find the resource for that information anywhere you look if you are inclined to look. I will only touch on a few things for the purpose of this article as one could spend half a lifetime writing about all the bad. The timber industry uses wood that is 30% cellulose to produce paper material. That means 70% of the tree is wasted or turned into particle board.
Where does it go then? Into the environment of course with all the chemical compounds with it, list of chemicals, Causing the land and environment around it to be contaminated. Polluting the water around it, the animals either directly or indirectly from the runoff and chemicals seeping into the soil.
Plastic is produced from petroleum and other petrochemical processes. The extraction of the oil itself has harmful effects on the environment. Many times tainting the soil near the site, take the gulf ocean incident for example.The wars and innocent lives lost on both sides is an irreparable damage. But we can stop relying on the products and oil from such incidents. I am not preaching what is right or wrong just a few common things we most are aware of. History is re-pleat with the disastrous causes of getting and manufacturing this lol, from the waste produced from plastic processing to the oil spills in the ocean.
I could be argue that oil has caused more death in the last 100 years then any famine or drought. Oil has polluted the environment we all need to survive. Our young men have fought wars for the corporations in the interest of obtaining another countries resource by force. When we spend our money on these plastic and paper products we are also subconsciously saying we support these things as well. If you are like most people the idea of war, poverty, and pestilence are not a fun time and generally not conspicuously supported. Well its not necessarily our fault. I mean what can you buy at the store that does not use petrochemicals and paper products? Almost nothing on the market. So what can we do about it?
By growing this one plant we the people have the power to return and retain the control over our spending power and the ideas and circumstance we support. By growing hemp we can eat up some of the co2 emissions they say are causing this green house gas effect; global warming (scam or not). We can produce plastics and paper of better quality without sacrificing our integrity and honor. We can support a sound ecosystem and clean up the pollution. The crops will get better as hemp puts nutrients back into the soil instead of depleting the nutrients. The money we spend goes to our neighbors and family as the products produced from domestically grown hemp can be less costly then imported products. And we all complain about everything being made in china huh? Plus all those taxes we pay for corporations to get tax breaks and subsidies for their oil will vanish. More money in your pocket and more money in the economy. When we buy products form other countries our money is going to them, and not staying here at home. I am not saying cut off foreign trade as it is good for the most part, but we need jobs and industry here as well.
Hemp has more then 50,000 applications from cosmetics to fuel. It is more resourceful then timber and petroleum combined and beneficial to the planet. Allowing us all the option of supporting our country neighbors and family by purchasing products grown at home and produced in factories down the street or even in someones garage lol. This allows us all to have a share of the pie and live more in tune with our environment. Improving the health of the individual and the planet as a whole.
Included in this article are references and resource for companies and their products. As well as on my page there is an amazon store full of all products made with hemp. I have also included links to other articles for information and books if your interested in educating oneself even further. I hope you have enjoyed this article. It was not my intention to provide resources for all the bad, as we can just think back in recent history and see the effects and causes. Turn on the news any day and see what the fight over these resources is doing. Take care and have a blessed day!

I am so-journer of this wonderfully majestic planet called Earth. I am only here to share love, offer advice, and spread the truth as one may see it. I have traveled across the American continent for three and half years beginning in 2010 off and on. Usually with very little resources. I believe that when one is doing for the good of humanity you will find and receive all things needed in your journey. Just as in every scripture and ancient text has told us. When you are in need give and you shall receive in like. I love all beings and creatures inhabiting the Earth even if some may have ulterior motives of control or de3ciet, that's neither here nor there for one must stay positive and keep spreading light and awareness the best one sees fit without clogging or demonizing others views.
