Sana Packaging, a sustainable packaging brand that designs and develops cannabis packaging for a circular economy, has launched the cannabis industry's first reclaimed ocean plastic jars: the Sana Ocean Jar 4.
"We're really excited about the Sana Ocean Jar 4,” said Ron Basak-Smith, cofounder and CEO. “It's our first 100 percent reclaimed ocean plastic jar and the first jar we're producing in-house. And while the Sana Ocean Jar 4 was designed to be used in conjunction with the Sana Ocean Screw-Top Lid, it's compatible with all 53-400 closures.”
Made in the U.S., the Sana Ocean Ocean Jar 4 is certified child-resistant and No. 2 recyclable. It has a volume of 4 oz. and fits up to 7 g of flower. The jar is also suitable for edibles and topicals.
Sana Packaging offers custom printing and labeling. These are available now for pre-order.
Sana Packaging aims to transition cannabis packaging away from a linear "take-make-dispose" economic model and towards a circular economic model meant to eliminate waste and pollution, keep products and materials in use, and regenerate natural systems. Sana Packaging is normalizing the concept of a circular economy and is accounting for the negative externalities of packaging waste so that they can serve as an example of the ways businesses can drive positive change.
"With the help of our incredible customers, Sana Packaging has already removed more than 58 tons (116,000 lbs) of plastic waste from our oceans,” Basak-Smith said. “For reference, the average car weighs about 2 tons (4,000 lbs).”
