No one wants to throw more waste into landfills.

 

So let's not.

 

Tweed has partnered with TerraCycle to develop the first national recycling program in the Canadian cannabis industry.

 

“But who is this TerraCycle?” we hear you ask. TerraCycle is a global leader in providing waste collection programs for hard-to-recycle materials. They’re good people.

 

Before we jump in, let us just say that there are some pretty good reasons to get involved, not least of which being that your heart is bound to swell with the knowledge that you’re part of the solution:

 

  • You’ll be reducing waste – let us just say, “Yay.”

  • It’s free. (Not a typo.)

  • You can feel good about helping the planet. I know we alluded to this already, but lists look better when they’re longer.


Now, as promised, here’s how the program works, and how you can get involved.

What is this program? Lay it out for me

Tweed and TerraCycle have created a program designed to keep cannabis packaging out of landfills. TerraCycle takes it, cleans it, and melts it down into plastic pellets that can be transformed into new products...which can be recycled again and turned into newer products. It’s a truly wonderful cycle.

What kind of packaging is accepted?

Here’s the beauty of it: this program recycles any and all cannabis packaging purchased from any and all licensed retailers. Outer packaging, inner packaging, tins, joint tubes, plastic bottles, plastic caps, and flexible plastic bags.

Once registered and approved*, you’ll receive a collection box to set up in your store. You’ll even have the ability to add your own brand elements to the lid, letting people know of the commitment you’ve made to the environment.

 

Win-win.
