LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIASana Packaging, a startup that designs and develops differentiated, sustainable, and compliant packaging solutions for the cannabis industry, announces a partnership with Oceanworks and a new line of reclaimed ocean plastic cannabis packaging. The new product line is set to launch in spring 2019.

Oceanworks partners with collection and processing agents around the world to bring trusted sources of ocean plastic materials to consumers eager to use their purchasing power to make a difference.

“We’re extremely excited about working with Oceanworks,” said Ron Basak-Smith, co-founder & CEO of Sana Packaging. “This is an incredible opportunity to help clean our oceans and protect some of our planet’s most fragile ecosystems. While hemp bioplastics will remain our core focus, ocean plastic is a problem we have to address.”

Sana Packaging’s flagship product line is made from 100% plant-based and chemical free hemp plastic. Now, Sana Packaging is proud to partner with Oceanworks to launch a new line of cannabis packaging made from reclaimed ocean plastic. Cannabis packaging waste is already making headlines and six of the ten states with recreational cannabis are coastal states – seven if you include Michigan, which borders four of the Great Lakes.
