Making a Sustainable Change.
Updated: Apr 22
The cannabis industry has a plastic problem, and we are actively trying to fix it. We have woven sustainability into our core from the beginning, but at the start of 2020 we realized that we needed to take more immediate action. We vowed to try to be plastic free by the end of the year and started taking more steps to be as sustainable as we could, tracking our steps from sourcing to distributing. We believe environmental justice is social justice.
Here's an update on our progress:
♻️ We've redesigned all of our packaging to be smaller and create less waste.
♻️ Our newest boxes are made from 100% post consumer recycled materials and are FSC certified.
♻️ We've re-evaluated our operations and production to cut down on our carbon footprint as much as we can. Waste minimization is an essential aspect of our processing method.
♻️ We've always (and will continue) to only source sun-grown cannabis because the sun is a sustainable energy source and has a much lower carbon footprint.
♻️ We have grown our list of Sun & Earth certified farms, organic farms, and regenerative farms. Yay Mother Earth!
♻️We recently became a member of OSC2 (One Step Closer/Organic Sustainable Community) - which is working toward a regenerative global economy and are committed to working with Sun & Earth certified farms.
♻️We switched our cart child resistant certified secure slides to ocean reclaimed plastic tubes.
♻️We use fresh, never frozen flower for all of our live extracts. Why? To reduce our carbon emissions by not using refrigerator trucks, and because fresh is best.
Here's what still needs to be done:
➡️ Find a more responsible option for our pre roll tubes.
➡️ We have been investigating what a used cart recycling program would look like and how to properly execute.
➡️ Our biggest challenge to date is changing out our tincture droppers, as finding a sustainable version of the same top we currently have has been a challenge.
➡️ So. Much. More.
