CREATING A RESPONSIBLE CIRCULAR PACKAGING ECONOMY FOR CANNABIS OPERATORS BY 2024.
DDRS: Dispensary Deposit Return System - Circular Model Flow Chart
Every year, more than 100 million pre-rolls are sold in the United States alone. Unfortunately, 99% of pre-roll tubes and containers do not end up getting recycled. Instead, they elude the collection system due to their small size, or are made from cheap materials that render them non-recyclable: both paths sending them to landfills or oceanic refuse dump.
The Dispensary Deposit Return System is a collection program designed to do what plastic recycling should have done for single-use and high volume products. Celise's EPR single-stream return program enables brands to replace harmful plastic packaging with a renewable, zero waste alternative. In turn, we can reduce our raw material consumption, lower greenhouse gas emissions, and replace plastics with a renewable source.
