With the world in dire need of sustainable solutions to secure the future, hemp has understandably become one of the most valuable options for the job. As hemp is set to be a global commodity with economic prospects that even Wall Street is drooling over, innovation in this market is key. One start up has tackled an area for hemp that is arguably one of the smartest to focus on at the moment: Hospitality. The total retail value of the global hotel industry was projected to cross $500 Billion in 2018. The Total revenue of the hotel industry in the USA alone was projected at $200 Billion for 2018. So, introducing hemp to this industry could be a game changer. This is what the San Francisco based company MoonCloth Designs has decided to do.
Today MoonCloth Designs announced the launch of ‘MOMENT’, a Hemp Wellness Collection focused on bringing more eco-friendly hemp-based bath + body products to market.
“We are driven to bring hemp into the sustainability spot light as an eco material solution. We started off working with hotels and spas to provide more sustainable solutions to their environments. We are now launching our own hemp wellness collection which showcases are beautiful hemp robes and hemp seed oil body products, which is now available on our online store and select retail partners,” explained Founder & CEO Sarah Harf.
Working with boutique and luxury hotels and hospitality brands like Soho House, Design Hotels, and Sensei Resorts, MoonCloth Designs is redefining the meaning of the word “wellness” by crafting elegant and sustainable solutions to hospitality environments, including custom hemp textiles design services and hotel room/spa amenities.
“By designing sustainable solutions using hemp, we can find beautiful and luxurious alternatives to synthetic body products, plastics, textiles, and positively change the future of our environment,” says MoonCloth Designs CEO & Founder, Sarah Harf. “Hemp seed oil and hemp fabric are great eco materials that allow us to create natural experiences without sacrificing design aesthetic.”
The critical component to MOMENT is the robustly regenerative plant hemp. Hemp purifies the soil of toxins like nitrogen and selenium, restores nutrients into the ground, and can sequester 1.62 tons of carbon dioxide for every ton harvest. Fibers made from hemp are anti-microbial, hypoallergenic, and free of synthetic materials and microplastics. Hemp seed oil is rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which help reduce inflammation and cell growth. It is also naturally hydrating and regulating the skin’s oil production.
“Our hemp-based products have tons of natural benefits for our bodies and our environment,” adds MoonCloth Designs Co-Founder Kelsi Lavicka.
Rooted in the daily practice of self-care and a love of natural beauty, MOMENT invites people to weave grounding moments into their daily lives by taking home the spa experience and aims to show the world that sustainability and high-end luxury are not mutually exclusive.
