By choosing AVD HempZyme™, you’re part of a sustainable story
We’re investing in ongoing R&D to develop raw material supply chains that have the lowest possible environmental impact. But without sacrificing on quality.
Out with plastic. In with renewable hemp
Choose from a range of classic flat mouthpieces. Hemp White and Hemp Natural. Designed to complement the AVD Easy-Press Glass, AVD Eazy-Press Polyresin and AVD All-Ceramic.
The best part? AVD’s Hemp-Plastic blend uses up to 15% less plastic and around 25% lower carbon footprint compared to traditional plastics.
Not only do the mouthpieces look great, but we’re reducing the volume of petroleum-based plastics that could enter our food chain.
Turning waste into a virtuous cycle
We’ve started up a whole new industry partnering with local hemp farmers. Usually, the remaining stalks are discarded after harvesting. Or worse still, incinerated, releasing damaging CO2 back into the atmosphere.
We now buy the stalks giving the farmers more revenue to reinvest. And the environment gets to breathe a whole lot easier.
More hemp. Less green-house gases
Fun fact. Each acre of hemp absorbs 5 tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
And since outdoor hemp grows with minimal fertilizer and pesticides, hemp absorbs substantially more CO2 than required for its cultivation.
All-Ceramic – Hemp Flat White
Eazy-Press – Hemp Flat Natural
Even the plastic decomposes
Usually, plastic takes hundreds or even thousands of years to decay. So we add an enzyme agent to the plastic. With no impact on shelf-life, the enzymes enhance the action of soil microbes, to help decompose the plastic parts within years and not centuries of discard. Just another way to leave a better future for our children.
Zero water. Zero waste
Because the hemp-stalks we purchase would have been surplus waste, no additional water is consumed for our hemp raw material. Another way hemp blends reduce the impact on our natural resources.
