Paul Benhaim demonstrates how hemp plastic and modern cars differ in this fun and short video. Does hemp or modern materials win?
When Henry Ford was building his first Model-T back in the early 1900s he used hemp to construct the car’s body and the engine was designed to run on hemp-based fuel! This car was, as they said back then, ‘grown from the soil’ with plastic hemp panels whose impact strength is 10 times stronger than steel. As Henry Ford said: “Why use up the forests which were centuries in the making and the mines which required ages to lay down, if we can get the equivalent of forest and mineral products in the annual growth of the hemp fields?” We all know what happened next: the steel and oil industry took over.
Luckily we did not give up on the benefits of hemp plastic as proven by Paul Benhaim in this video who demonstrates how hemp plastic (in the shape of a didgeridoo) and modern cars (including a Ford) differ in this fun and short video. Hemp versus modern materials, how is going to win?
