SAN DIEGO, Oct. 15, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CBDCapitalGroup (“CCG” or the “Company”), a CBD nutraceuticals investment and scaling company, today announced that its subsidiary Mana Artisan Botanics™ (“Mana Botanics”) has taken the next step in its mission to serve as a leader in sustainable and eco-friendly practices within the cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabis industries by becoming a Plastic Negative-certified organization.
To accomplish this goal, Mana Botanics has become the first CBD company in the world to enroll in rePurpose Global’s One for One Impact Guarantee Program. Through this program, the company has committed to funding the collection, and processing of one pound of nature bound plastic waste for every product it sells. In effect, Mana Botanics is removing more plastic waste than it uses in its packaging and each product purchase will have a plastic negative footprint.
“Since our founding, we have put sustainability at the forefront of our operations. Our company supports critical regenerative farming practices and sources the majority of our ingredients from local farmers in Hawaii to reduce our carbon footprint while supporting our community and local economy,” said Mana Artisan Botanics™ co-founder Steve Sakala. “While only the absolutely necessary parts of our packaging, such as the outer piece of the dropper, are made from plastic, I am proud to know that we are doing our part to offset those pieces.”
The cannabis industry generates 150 million tons of waste annually. Much of this is created by single-use packaging that is used throughout the growing cannabis industry. Through being the first CBD company to join rePurpose Global’s One for One Impact program, Mana Botanics aims to encourage the rest of the cannabis and CBD industries to help offset this issue by becoming a Plastic Neutral/Negative organization.
By joining rePurpose Global’s One for One Impact Guarantee Program, Mana Botanics is also helping to tackle the 50 billion dollar a year funding gap that plagues recycling supply chains worldwide. As a leader in sustainable practices with the CBD industry, Mana Botanics recognizes the grave threat that plastic pollution poses to the future of our planet and is taking action against this epidemic.
“It’s clear that Mana Botanics is built on values of sustainable, responsible business. By going Plastic Negative, they’ve not only proven their commitment to environmental action, but have taken bold steps toward inspiring other industry leaders to do the same. We’re excited to see the ripple effects of Mana Botanics’ Plastic Negative Certification,” said rePurpose Global Chief Marketing Officer, Peter Wang Hjemdahl.
