Program developed in response to customer feedback and company’s own values as a socially responsible organization
Alberta-based High Tide Inc. has announced it recently launched a free recycling program in its Canna Cabana retail cannabis stores for all Health Canada-approved cannabis product packaging.
The company is implementing the program in each of its five existing stores in Calgary, Edmonton, Lethbridge and Whitecourt, Alberta, notes a statement from the downstream cannabis corporation focused on the manufacturing and wholesale distribution of smoking accessories and cannabis lifestyle products.
All packaging materials featuring the Health Canada THC symbol can be dropped off at any Canna Cabana store, the company reports. The program “accepts any and all cannabis packaging purchased from a licensed retailer, including outer and inner plastic packaging, tins, joint tubes, plastic bottles, plastic caps and flexible plastic bags,” it adds.
“All collected recyclables will be sent to a qualified recycling services provider to be reused, upcycled or recycled into a variety of affordable, sustainable consumer products and industrial applications,” High Tidepoints out.
Developed in response to consistent customer feedback regarding the cannabis consumer experience and the company’s own values as a socially responsible organization, “the recycling program will also be offered at all new Canna Cabana stores opening across Canada,” High Tide reports.
“We heard from our customers, loud and clear, that they weren’t happy when it came to the excess amount of packaging that is required for cannabis products,” says Raj Grover, the company’s founder, president and CEO. “Although we have no control over the packaging of cannabis products, we decided that the least we could do was to help collect and recycle it for customers,” Grover adds.
