Sana Packaging designs and develops differentiated, sustainable, and compliant packaging solutions for the cannabis industry using 100% plant-based hemp plastic, 100% reclaimed ocean plastic, and other sustainable materials.
We believe in designing for recovery and using rapidly renewable and regenerative resources. We believe in a circular economic model where packaging is designed to help heal the environment.
In an increasingly global economy, localization is more important than ever. We're proud to be a Made in the USA company committed to supporting domestic agriculture and domestic manufacturing. We work with our clients from ideation to delivery to ensure a high level of quality and customer service.
The linear "take-make-dispose" economic model has led to scarcity, volatility, and unaffordable pricing. The way we think about sustainability, disposable products, and waste recovery needs to evolve. We need to transition to a circular economic model. A circular economy is restorative and regenerative by design and meant to build economic, natural, and social capital.
