From Peace Corps To Peace Pipes: Steve Sakala Talks Sustainable Cannabis

Steve Sakala says there's zero excuse for consumer packaged goods companies to not be plastic negative. Take his work in the cannabis industry, for example. Like most industries, the world of weed has a major sustainability problem. It creates (at least) 150 million tons of waste annually, mainly due to single-use plastic packaging. Steve was with the Peace Corp, traveled the world, learned a lot, settled down in Hawaii and launched Mana Artisan Botanics — which he claims is the first plastic-negative CBD company in the U.S. How did he do it? Well, it's simple. He partnered with rePurpose Global, a one-stop shop that collects and recycles one pound of ocean-bound plastic waste for every product Steve sells. They also ditch plastic packaging, use sustainable alternatives, support regenerative and local farming practices and source ingredients locally to reduce the carbon footprint. Join us in saying "Aloha" to Steve!
