Cata anno in le Statos Unite on utilisa 12 milliones de tonnas de papiro proveniente de pulpa de ligno pro le production de jornales.

Secundo le quotidiano francese “Le Figaro”, le papiro obtenite del fibra de iste planta es “plus forte, plus lisie, plus durabile, e plus blanc” que illo fabricate ex le pulpa de ligno. In plus, “illo non jalnesce”.

Paper from cannabis is better than paper from pine trees!
Each year the United States uses twelve million tons of paper coming from wood pulp for the production of newspapers.
Since supplies of wood are becoming more and more scarce, the world of journalism is starting to pay more attention to a species of cannabis (hibiscus cannabis), a bush known since antiquity that can grow five meters tall in only three months. According to the French daily “Le Figaro,” the paper obtained from the fiber of this plant is “stronger, softer, more durable, and whiter” than paper made from wood pulp. In addition, “it does not turn yellow.”
An additional advantage is that this variety of cannabis can produce up to nine times more pulp per hectar than pine trees can. Despite these advantages, it has been estuimated that in 1988, cannabis fiber represented only one percent of all the paper sold for newspaper use.
