New Jars for the Cannabis Industry: Much Lighter, Zero Landfill and Made in Canada, Naturally™ from Renewable Resources Including Hemp Fibre
TORONTO, July 2, 2019 – Hansen Packaging presents a trail-blazing sustainable path forward for the cannabis industry: a jar that is Made in Canada, Naturally™.
Hansen has developed a full product line of jars for the cannabis industry with a compelling combination of benefits, including: a drastic reduction in the amount of material used in making the jars, the use of renewable resources, and an environmentally responsible end-of-life disposal.
Wherever cannabis has been legalized (Canada, California, Colorado, etc.) consumers have taken immediate notice of what many claim to be “excessive packaging”. In order to comply with the laws governing the packaging of cannabis, producers often pack their products into plastic containers, some of which are only designed to be used once and then discarded. Consumers have been outspoken in calling for a reduction in plastic, with a more responsible end-of-life for the packaging, and a more sustainable source for the raw materials.
Available now at compostablejars.com, these “Made in Canada, Naturally™” jars are a response to the current worldwide push to eliminate landfill-destined plastics in packaging. Some of the compelling reasons to adopt these new, sustainable packaging solutions are:
Competitive Green Technologies (CGTech) has BPI (Biodegradable Products Institute) certified resins that are deemed compostable in industrial composting facilities when used as components in a product that also needs to go through the certification process.
These bio-composite resins are made from renewable resources including hemp. The guiding philosophy of the company is to use, as much as possible, agricultural residues that are non-food and non-forest based renewable natural resources. This facilitates the circular economy to becoming a real, sustainable alternative – from land to a Brand and then back again to land. The continuing research and commercialization at CGTech will ensure that improvements in performance continue to be made for the cannabis jars.
