Introducing Made in Canada, Naturally™ Jars for the Cannabis Industry

In response to the current worldwide push to eliminate landfill-destined plastics in packaging, we have designed Made in Canada, Naturally™ jars for the cannabis industry

Compelling Reasons To Adopt Our Differentiated And Sustainable Packaging Solution For A Carbon Neutral Economy:

The packaging is significantly lighter​

Our 3.5g Flower Jar weighs 12g and the lid weighs 6g – this is 18g total. The incumbent jars currently used along with the lids weigh 74 grams. This is a savings of over 1.2 million pounds of plastic for every 10 million jars. And that is just for the one SKU! This directly translates to greenhouse gas savings.
We have accomplished this weight savings without sacrificing quality by designing our jars and closures using a barrier protected bio-composite resin that lends itself to thin-walled molding.

First In The World - We use waste streams of the hemp plant​

The black colour is from USDA certified “99% new carbon” using “waste” streams of the hemp plant from the cannabis industry and does not use any carbon black that is fossil-fuel derived. 

100% Renewable Resources​

Our bio-composite resin is made from 100% renewable resources that have a zero-carbon footprint. Use of Non-renewable fossil fuels is thus minimized – contributing to reduction in GHGs.
We have worked very hard to design a jar, from renewable resources, that is suitable for the cannabis industry.​​

Food contact and BPI certified resins used to mold the jars​

The resins used to mold these jars are food contact certified (DinCertco 8C084 and ASTM D6866) and are derived in large part from land and the resins used to mold these jars are BPI certified (Biodegradable Products Institute). We have designed and are custom-building our own molds specifically for the cannabis industry.​

Our Resin Partner –

Competitive Green Technologies

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.

The molded jars are made using resins from Competitive Green Technologies that, in addition to being compostable as components, are also zero leach and hence there is no ingress from the resin into the packaged goods.​

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 Made in Canada, naturally™.​

Are plastic jars used by the cannabis industry really recycled?

We manufacture jars that are light. Contain no fossil fuels. Only use renewable resources.

Consider our jars or competing products from other innovative companies who are trying to reduce our addiction to plastic packaging.

The plastic industry has designed and manufactured billions of jars.

We all own some.

If your cannabis is packaged in a plastic jar, consider the following statistics or do some additional research:

years to decompose plastic items in landfills

It takes up to 500 years to decompose plastic items in landfills.​ Also, Over time, plastic breaks down into tiny particles called micro-plastics, which are found on shorelines around the world.

500000
metric tons of plastic ends up in the world’s oceans annually

Almost 8 million metric tons of plastic ends up in the world’s oceans annually, according to a 2015 study from UC Santa Barbara.​

50000
sea creatures killed every year for plastic waste

The plastic waste that is thrown away into seas every year can kill as many as 1,000,000 sea creatures.​

0.1 %
Only 9.1% is Recycled

According to EPA, 9.1% of plastic material generated in the U.S. Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) stream was recycled in 2015. Another 15.5% was combusted for energy, while 75.4% was sent to landfills.​

there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish by 2050

According to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish by 2050, while researchers believe the amount of ocean plastic will be 10 times greater by 2020.

Global production of plastics

Between 2004 and 2014, the global production of plastics grew from 225 million tons to 311 million tons.
