The Plastic Crisis
The urgent need to reduce plastic waste and find sustainable alternatives
Did you know that Canada's landfills were burdened with an astonishing 5.8 to 6.4 million kilograms of plastic cannabis packaging from October 2018 to August 2019. This rampant plastic waste not only poisons our soil and water but also contributes to greenhouse gas emissions and biodiversity loss. It's high time we take action to reduce our plastic usage.
It's heartbreaking to know that every year, more than 8 million tons of plastic end up in our oceans, and half of it comes from single-use packaging. This plastic not only harms the sea but also endangers human health. Marine animals get entangled, injured, and killed by plastics, and they can even enter the food chain, posing a threat to all living beings.
Are you aware that plastic pollution has a detrimental impact on both our oceans and the air we breathe? Plastic, which is derived from fossil fuels, emits harmful pollutants into the atmosphere during its creation and disposal. As plastic disintegrates into minuscule pieces, these microplastics can travel vast distances and wreak havoc on clouds, weather patterns.
Gather up your stash of cannabis packaging and let us work our magic to create new and exciting products just for you.
Reduces the amount of plastic waste that ends up in landfills or the environment, and it creates a circular economy where plastic is reused instead of discarded.

High Tide is proud to partner with [Re] Waste, another Alberta-grown business, to divert thousands of units of single-use cannabis plastics from landfills into reusable and functional products. As the largest non-franchised retailer in Canada, we are conscious of the volume of packaging cannabis produces and are taking steps proactively to ensure these plastics can be re-purposed and that they don't end up in landfills
So much misinformation exists about plastics to begin with. Now that we know where our used cannabis plastics go, we love to collect our plastic and bring them in monthly to a store that supports these recycling efforts.
Stok'd Cannabis is a brand built around the Canadian outdoors, so of course we're all about preserving our environment. We've partnered with ReWaste to not only keep cannabis packaging 'off the streets' and out of landfills, but to reuse it by creating products our customers can use and enjoy. It's a win/win for all, and we're Stok'd to be a part of this initiative!
I love this place! They have a great selection of products, friendly staff, and a convenient recycling bin for cannabis packaging. I always bring my empty containers and bags here to dispose of them in an eco-friendly way. It’s a win-win situation for me and the environment.
