PK Packaging announces its launch as a sustainable paperboard packaging company that provides custom solutions to the cannabis industry. PK Packaging’s team, well versed in both cannabis and packaging, have become aware that there is a major disconnect between the two industries. In order to solve this issue and bridge the gap, the company has entered into strategic partnerships with some of the global leaders in paperboard packaging production. Through this model, PK Packaging is excited to combine their own cannabis expertise with the decades worth of investment in innovation and sustainable practices of their partners. The outcome is a scalable cannabis packaging option that is not going to stick around in the environment for years to come. President and CEO Scott Korn says “I believe that PK Packaging can make a real difference for the future of cannabis companies and their consumers by bringing this innovation to the industry. We are talking about the type of advancements in packaging and sustainability that the cannabis industry has not seen on a scalable level.”
It is no secret that the lack of eco-friendly practices within the cannabis industry has become a major concern, and plastic packaging waste is now one of the biggest culprits. Recently Futerra did a study that tells us we live in a culture where 88% of people choose a product based on environmental impact. It is not surprising that there has been attention brought to the irresponsible practices of the cannabis industry. The vast majority of cannabis consumers are inherently eco-conscious, and they want to support an industry that shares those values.
PK Packaging offers the cannabis industry fully custom packaging solutions that are developed from recyclable paperboard, made from recycled and renewable materials. The production process is sustainable as well, with emphasis on water conservation, energy management, sustainable forestry, and waste reduction. Companies that work with PK Packaging will also have the option of custom machinery for onsite automated packaging, allowing them to become more efficient, saving time and energy and meeting higher production targets. PK Packaging’s expertise, combined with the sustainable innovation of their manufacturers, positions the company to provide the packaging that cannabis consumers expect from the industry.
