LOS ANGELES, July 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The cannabis industry has a plastic problem. An estimated 1 million tons of plastic waste were generated from the cannabis industry in 2019. 75% of this plastic is believed to not have been recycled, as this waste piles up, so do the microplastics and nano plastics found entering our landscapes, oceans, and food supply chains.
"Our goal is to remove 750 thousand pounds of plastic from the cannabis supply chain by replacing current plastic offerings with our plant-based, bio-polymer blends." Jonathan Heiniemi, founder, and CEO of Humidi.co continued, "our products are designed to degrade within 14-18 months."
Humidi has found a viable alternative to plastic with HumidiNaturals™ and this technology will enable cannabis producers and enthusiasts to enjoy their products without negatively impacting the environment.
