Show Notes:

In this interview I’m joined by Mandi Kerr of ‘The Global Hemp Association’ for a discussion about making big leaps towards a circular economy and less dependency on fossil fuels through establishing new uses for the hemp plant. Hemp is incredibly versatile and can be used within all manner of applications from insulation and construction materials, to textiles, food and even tyres!
Mandi recognised a huge opportunity here and created her non-profit organisation, The Global Hemp Association to connect together all manner of people; from researchers, farmers, manufacturers, government, haulage, educators etc. to increase the pace of product development and new supply chains through discussions and collaboration.

Note: Hemp is related to the marijuana plant however it doesn’t contain enough THC to cause intoxication. Despite this the relation causes legal complications when growing or using the hemp plant, which has historically been utilised for its fibre rather than its intoxicating compounds.
