Etsy Hempsters is a global Etsy street team of independent artists using and promoting hemp in their handmade products. They foster a community that shares and supports each other in their work; promotes and educates about industrial hemp; and advocates for political change in current laws which keep the United States as the only industrialized nation without this billion-dollar-per-year industrial crop.

Our first Team Event! a Donation Drive

Our first Team Event is a donation drive for the HIA, the Hemp Industries Association . Etsy Hempsters members will be donating hand made with hemp items to raise money for our group membership to the HIA with all proceeds going the HIA. We choose the HIA for their prominent work in the hemp industry.

"The Hemp Industries Association (HIA) is a non-profit trade group representing hemp companies, researchers and supporters. We are at the forefront of the drive for fair and equal treatment of industrial hemp. Since 1992, the HIA has been dedicated to education, industry development, and the accelerated expansion of hemp world market supply and demand.

The hemp industry has positioned itself over the past decade to once again become a major global economic force in the 21st century. Hemp is one of
our planet's most important natural resources, and we advocate using it to its full potential." (quote and photo taken from
