Using hemp and flax to make paper packaging

Every year over 3.2 billion trees are cut down for paper packaging and for fashion fabrics like viscose. 

Many of these trees come from the world’s most vital, carbon- and biodiversity-rich forests.

There are better ways to produce paper packaging and fashion fabrics than cutting down irreplaceable ecosystems.

Fibers365 is one of Canopy’s innovation partners bringing those vital solutions to market.

They can use feedstocks like hemp, flax, and even tomato and banana stems to make paper and packaging. 

Fibers365 technology is chemical-free and low-water use.

Their process can also help save forests. 

These are the types of Next Generation Solutions Canopy is working to scale.
