how is hemp cleaning up after CHERNOBYL? 🌱 💥 ⁠

💥 the chernobyl explosion meant radioactive waste was spewed across 100,000 square kilometres rendering much of it unusable as it was harmed by toxic metals leaching into the soil ☢️ ⁠ ⁠

🧪 phytotech began experimenting with industrial hemp 🌱 & discovered it can be used to clean up:⁠ metals, pesticides⁠, solvents, ⁠explosives⁠, crude oil and ⁠toxins ⁠ ⁠

🌱 growing hemp around the abandoned chernobyl nuclear power plant ☢️ dramatically reduced soil toxicity⁠ ⁠

🍽 although this hemp cannot be consumed it is used for biofuel ⛽️ ⁠ ⁠

💭 it was once thought that chernobyl wouldn’t be habitable for 20,000 years but with hemp 🌱 regenerating the land it will be much sooner!
