HEMPY'S was founded in 1995 in order to provide environmentally friendly alternatives to pesticide-intensive cotton and non-renewable synthetic clothing and accessories. Hemp is an ideal choice. A strong, natural and renewable plant, Cannabis Sativa (hemp) is grown with fewer chemical inputs than cotton and, depending on the source country of the hemp, its often grown with no chemical inputs at all. The benefits are less water pollution, less air pollution and because of hemp's soil anchoring qualities, less soil erosion.

Many believe hemp is a superior fiber when compared to cotton and synthetics. In addition to textile goods like jeans and wallets, hemp can also be used to make many other eco-friendly products including paper, oil, and food (from hemp seed) that can be used as part of a healthy, earth conscious way of living.

As a family of surfers, hikers and nature lovers, the folks at Hempy's experience first-hand the negative impacts of water and air pollution, soil erosion and other ecologically damaging effects of our economy. Their American-made hemp and recyled products, in a small but important way, help to minimize the destruction of the natural environment we all treasure.

HEMPY'S has an 11 year tradition of supporting American workers and the U.S. economy. All HEMPY'S product are "Made in the USA," except for their recyled tire belt from Canada. Why are they so committed to American labor? One important reason is because they value the level of quality and control American production allows them. They are able to visit our manufacturing facilities to ensure a decent working environment for their sewers. They can also quickly make changes or improvements to their product line.

By keeping Hempy's clothing and accessories production in the United States, they support American workers by keeping important manufacturing jobs in the country. Local American production also means less fossil fuel burned during the transportation of products to the consumer. All HEMPY'S products sold within the United States are shipped to stores and individuals directly from their California warehouse. This helps minimize the environmental impact of the transportation and distribution of our goods. So, at Hempy's they say "Buy American--its good for the country and the environment!"
