Why did you decide on these items to include in the sustainable packaging kit?
Our catalogue of items has been carefully selected to include packaging opportunities to align with the goals communicated by the cannabis community, with a focus on more sustainable materials. The selection includes both in-stock and made-to-order solutions, allowing many of the products to be accessible in any capacity, for any size company or project.
What is the costing for the sustainable options?
Costing is dependent on the design, product, and input material. In general, this will be considered a more premium price point compared to traditional packaging, until these sustainable resins become more of the industry norm. Our goal is to make this as accessible as possible for our customers, to help ease the transition to more sustainable options
