N2 Packaging Systems has recently joined the Sustainable Cannabis Coalition (SCC), marking the latest development N2 has made to create more sustainable packaging and to eventually become a plastic-free packaging supplier by the end of 2023.
“Sustainability is a core principle of our company since its inception and we try to infuse that into everything we do as a leading cannabis packaging innovator,” said Thom Brodeur, CEO of N2 Packaging. “We are proud to join the other members of the SCC, and look forward to working with them to support the cannabis industry’s objectives around reducing waste, reducing carbon footprint and processing and packaging in more eco-friendly ways.”
Launched in 2021, the SCC is a group of cannabis industry leaders that work together to improve and promote sustainability across all verticals of the cannabis industry including cultivation, manufacturing and distribution. N2 joins other esteemed members of the coalition including GMP Collective, Culta, Valiant, Trulieve, CohnReznick and 365 Cannabis, and it will use its platform to encourage its customers to join them in prioritizing sustainability in 2022 and beyond.
N2 offers the most environmentally friendly packaging solutions serving the cannabis industry and ensures that all of its raw materials are sourced and made from recycled, repurposed or renewable materials and composites. Over the course of the pandemic, N2 also made a critical decision to move its manufacturing operations back to North America from China in an effort to further reduce its carbon footprint by 75% and to guarantee domestic supply of packaging needs for its customers.
“We are thankful to have ethical and sustainable-minded cannabis companies like N2 join our organization because they understand that now is the time to take actionable steps to protect our planet for the future generations to come,” said Shawn Cooney, co-founder of the SCC. “As the cannabis industry continues to mature and legalization efforts gain momentum across the nation, companies that recognize the importance of sustainability and make responsible decisions when it comes to their operations will lead the industry.”
N2 Packaging Systems is an Arizona-based sustainable packaging company that offers innovative packaging solutions for various industries, including the legal cannabis industry.
