Hawaiian Ethos has decided to use sustainable and compostable packaging to help protect the local environment. It’s one of the first companies in the U.S. to implement the eco-friendly packaging.
The company is hoping to make sustainable packaging an industry standard, Big Island Now reported. Most marijuana products are packaged in plastic, which is cheaper, but bad for the environment.
Hawaiian Ethos said, “While plastic is easily accessible and may appear cheap, we are now seeing that the long-term costs of single-use plastics are catastrophic.”
The dispensary is hoping that more will follow in their footsteps by using sustainable packaging.
