The call for sustainability is louder than ever in today’s rapidly evolving market. Companies across various industries are stepping up to the challenge, and AssurPack® is at the forefront of this movement in the cannabis packaging sector. As consumers become more environmentally conscious, the demand for eco-friendly solutions has grown, pushing businesses to innovate and adopt sustainable practices. AssurPack® prides itself on following plastic sustainability across multiple industries to stay at the forefront of innovative materials and design. Here we share some interesting cutting-edge recycling trends:

Sweden’s Recycling Revolution: A Model for Sustainable Practices

Sweden’s approach to waste management is a beacon of inspiration for the world. The country has significantly reduced landfill usage by converting waste into energy and pioneered a circular economy. This model demonstrates that the right infrastructure and policies can transform waste into valuable resources. Such innovations apply to municipal waste and offer insights for industries like cannabis packaging, where sustainability is paramount.

The Healthcare Packaging Industry: Lessons in Sustainability

The healthcare packaging industry has made significant strides in sustainability, driven by factors such as regulatory pressures and consumer demand for greener products. Like healthcare, the cannabis industry can benefit from adopting sustainable practices that reduce waste and promote recyclability. For instance, by focusing on easy-to-open packaging designs, AssurPack® enhances user convenience and ensures that the materials used can be easily recycled.

Consumer Preferences and Sustainable Packaging

A recent report highlighted that consumers are willing to pay more for cannabis products that come in exclusive, creative, and reusable packaging. This trend underscores the importance of sustainable packaging solutions that meet regulatory requirements and appeal to environmentally conscious consumers. AssurPack® recognizes this shift in consumer preferences and has proactively developed innovative and sustainable packaging solutions.

Award Winning Paper Bottles

AJG Packaging recently won The Luxe Pack in Green Award with its innovative pulp bottle, showcasing amazing packaging innovations that other companies haven’t made. These containers are made of molded pulp and can range from bottles, jars, and blisters to cups for refillable jars. All these are coated with plant-based material, providing a great barrier for any liquid.

Incredible Biodegradable Packaging

Biogone Plastics has developed a proprietary organic additive that allows its film to biodegrade 20 times faster than conventional film used for pallet wraps. The degradation process for these plastics begins when they enter microbe-rich environments like landfills. This wrap is made from 50% post-consumer recycled plastics and biodegrades 90% faster than traditional plastics when thrown in a landfill.
