Mary Magazine: CAN THE GREEN RUSH SAVE OUR OCEANS?
Let these ocean facts sink in:
Eight million metric tons of plastic enter the ocean annually. There is more microplastic in the ocean than there are stars in the Milky Way, killing more than one million seabirds and marine animals each year. The main culprit, single-use plastics. If nothing is done by 2050, plastic in the ocean will outweigh fish.
One company is taking a stand and has made a commitment to saving the Big Blue by truly “going green”. In the new age of cannabis compliance, child-resistant packaging has amassed an uptick in single-use plastic packaging. Because virgin single-use plastic is much less expensive to manufacture, most cannabis brands opt for the most cost-effective solution regardless of its environmental impact. But a new wave of conscious packaging has arrived and Ocean Cannabis Company is leading the pack.
