Plastic Recycling for the Cannabis Industry
The Cannabis Industry creates thousands of tonnes of plastic waste. In Canada, it’s estimated that 5.8 to 6.4 million kilograms of plastic cannabis packages ended up in landfills during the first year of legalization (2018-2019). Plastic waste and the Cannabis industry tend to go hand in hand, but our specialized process works to mitigate the impact of this plastic waste on the environment.
[Re] Waste has worked closely with leaders in the cannabis industry to create customized collection programs and design products that the cannabis industry can use and resell, made out of the recycled plastic. We have the unique ability to design and manufacture safe cannabis consumption accessories and display cases, all out of the recycled plastic collected from the very same cannabis stores.
One of the number one complaints of the cannabis industry, found by a Ryerson University research study, is how much plastic packaging the products come in. Our specialized programs for plastic waste collection in the cannabis industry provides collection bins for both the business and clients to dispose of their plastic waste responsibly. By working with [Re] Waste, you can reduce your environmental impact and improve how the public views the environmental initiatives of the cannabis industry.
