Due to regulatory requirements, cannabis products are seemingly surrounded by a lot of packaging and Sana Packaging creates cannabis packaging solutions for a circular economy, as seen with its Sana Ocean Tube 116 made from 100% reclaimed ocean plastic. The design of the pre-roll tube retains the industry standard child-resistant pop-top but it offers a more sustainable alternative that helps to make the most of usable materials that are already in circulation.
Co-Founder & CEO Ron Basak-Smith says, "Compared to our previous pre-roll tube designs, we were able to reduce our material use by 25% and provide our customers with a 30% cost savings." The fully recyclable packaging design has the potential to be used for various products and it's poised to disrupt the linear "take, make and dispose" model.
