Benefits of Hemp Bedding
- 4x More Absorbent
- Reduces Ammonia Odors Better than wood chips or sawdust
- Low Dust Means Better Air Quality
- Biodegradable – Better for Animals & the Planet
Absorbs 4x Its Own Weight
Hemp is 75% cellulose and is a natural absorbent. This is the perfect material to keep your animals dry and happy. Because hemp absorbs four times its weight, compared to two times for wood and paper products, you need to clean and change bedding less often. This is a cost savings to you and better for the environment.
When hemp bedding is used, urine goes straight to the bottom of the animal stall, keeping the surface clean and dry. Odors become trapped under the surface, reducing ammonia and other odors much better than wood chips or sawdust. Reducing odor helps control flies and makes a more pleasing environment for you and your animals. Perfect for a barn full of horse stalls or your backyard chicken coop!
Low Dust Means Improved Air Quality
Dust compromises the quality of air for your animal and can easily lead to breathing complications. Hemp bedding offers a low dust environment, crucial for the health of your animals. It has air pockets and excellent heat retention properties when compared to sawdust or pine shavings.
Biodegradable = Better for Animals and Planet
Hemp bedding degrades faster than most animal care products such as wood shavings and sawdust. Perfect for your garden compost. Support sustainable farming practices and help create a larger demand for Hemp. The earth and economy will thank you for it.
