LAS VEGAS, April 10, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hemp, Inc. (OTC:HEMP) announced today it will be showcasing its hemp-based cosmeceutical line and hemp nutraceutical products at the Manhattan Beach New Earth Expo on Sunday, April 12, 2015 in Los Angeles, CA. Through continuing its commitment to corporate consciousness, sales and marketing, environmentalism, philanthropy and personal empowerment, the upcoming expo is the second in eleven being sponsored by Hemp, Inc. (OTC:HEMP).
"Hemp, Inc. is pleased with its decision to sponsor New Earth Events thus far because it's helping to bring one-of-kind events to our industry. Our years of experience coupled with New Earth Events' 35 years of producing shows brings enormous value to our industry and participants," says Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. "This is already proving to be a successful joint venture. The Industrial Hemp and Medical Marijuana industries are definitely one of the subsets of the 'Cultural Creatives' movement. Both the exhibitors and attendees of the Manhattan Beach New Earth Expo are the perfect market consumers for Hemp, Inc.'s hemp-based cosmeceutical and hemp nutraceutical products."
By assembling the "Cultural Creatives" from all walks of life, the Manhattan Beach New Earth Expo's mission is to "enjoy, learn, co-create successful ventures, cooperate in facilitating commerce, and empower each other toward a higher consciousness in solving the planet's most important social, environmental and human rights issues."
New Earth Events is a producer of new life expos, holistic living expos, holistic holiday markets, and health and healing arts fairs. According to its Executive Director, Dean Price, the Manhattan Beach New Earth Expo will allow 'Cultural Creatives' to showcase cutting-edge healing remedies and innovative products of individuals and organizations committed to healing and positive creation. Price expects the Manhattan Beach New Earth Expo to draw hundreds of attendees to hear its roster of green conscious innovators including: Ilona Glinarsky; Rev. Kathleen L. Dixon; Alina Estrada; Roya Daizadeh; Debrah Hall Ph.D.; Dr. Eve Allen; and Ronnie Theroux, to name a few.
Perlowin plans to use the Manhattan Beach New Earth Expo to not only support the activities of these affiliates but to also initiate an exchange of ideas to form effective business relationships between and among both their own affiliates and other like-minded companies and organizations that will be in attendance. As a major sponsor, Hemp, Inc. (OTC:HEMP) will play a key role in the marketing and promotional activities leading up to all the upcoming events produced by New Earth Events, through email and social media campaigns and using mass outbound calling in the local areas of each event.
Attendees of the event will also get a chance to learn first-hand about how Hemp, Inc.'s automated Temafa decortication line will be used to process raw hemp and kenaf for the American farmers. Hemp, Inc.'s 70,000 square foot facility in Spring Hope, North Carolina houses the commercial Temafa decortication line that is the only one of its scale in North America.
The decortication facility in North Carolina continues to progress. See its current video update here. Hemp, Inc. executives are eagerly looking forward to bringing more hemp-based clean, green solutions to the American people. "We constantly strive to deliver value to our shareholders and we believe our efforts will position us to do just that over the long term."
The synergistic expo will put Hemp, Inc. one step further to its goal. The Manhattan Beach New Earth Expo continues to bring conscious-oriented people together through commerce, working and living in a way that is conscious of other people, conscious of the environment and cultures, and mending those traits in everyday business practices.

ABOUT HEMP, INC.'s DECORTICATION PLANT IN NORTH CAROLINA
The new LED lighting has arrived at the decortication facility and is currently being installed. The Temafa Engineers are on schedule to arrive on site at the end of the month to begin the reassembly of Hemp, Inc.'s decortication line. See Hemp, Inc.'s latest video update on the decortication plant.
Hemp, Inc.'s automated Temafa decortication line, which can be used to process raw hemp and Kenaf for the American farmers, is the only commercial, large-scale machine of its kind in North America. According to Perlowin, it would take at least 2 years, minimum, to duplicate the line. Hemp, Inc. and its whole team is committed to the American farmers and plans to continue spearheading a new clean, green American Agricultural and Industrial Revolution based on hemp and hemp products. The decortication and milling plant, is housed in a 70,000 square-foot warehouse (with a 6-inch cement foundation and a refrigerated section).
HEMP, INC.'s TRIPLE BOTTOM LINE
Hemp, Inc. (OTC:HEMP) seeks to benefit many constituencies from a "Cultural Creative" perspective thereby not exploiting or endangering any group. CEO of Hemp, Inc. (OTC:HEMP), Bruce Perlowin, is positioning the company as a leader in the industrial hemp industry, with a social and environmental mission at its core. Thus, the publicly-traded company believes in "upstreaming" of a portion of profit from the marketing of their finished hemp goods back to its originator, in which most cases will one day be the American farmer, cultivating natural, sustainable products as an interwoven piece of nature. By Hemp, Inc. focusing on comprehensive investment results—that is, with respect to performance along the interrelated dimensions of people, planet, and profits—our triple bottom line approach can be an important tool to support sustainability goals.
