KushCo Holdings Joins Sustainable Packaging Coalition

KushCo Holdings Joins Sustainable Packaging Coalition
Kush is the first cannabis-related business to join global brands on sustainable packaging solutions.

KushCo Holdings, Inc., the parent company of cannabis industry leaders such as Kush Supply Co., Kush Energy, The Hybrid Creative and Koleto Packaging Solutions, which provide a range of services and products for the regulated cannabis, CBD and other related industries, announced it has joined the Sustainable Packaging Coalition (SPC), a membership-based collaborative that is considered the leading voice on sustainable packaging solutions.

As a member of the SPC, KushCo stated it will collaborate with other companies in a variety of industries, each involved in developing and employing environmentally friendly packaging solutions that fit each company’s unique products and consumer demands. Other SPC members include The Coca-Cola Company, McDonald’s, Mars, Inc., Procter & Gamble, Starbucks Coffee, United Parcel Service (UPS) and Walmart, among others.

"Joining the Sustainable Packaging Coalition is a milestone not only for our company but for the cannabis industry as whole," said KushCo CEO Nick Kovacevich in a statement. "KushCo and its divisions are the first cannabis-related company to join this premier tier of global brands in the SPC. This initiative further demonstrates our commitment to developing sustainable packaging solutions for the cannabis supply chain. We are dedicated to understanding how KushCo can employ innovative methods to develop more environmentally friendly packaging.”

“As the cannabis industry’s largest and most respected distributor of packaging, supplies and accessories, being a leader in reducing waste in the cannabis industry is an important pillar we internally rally around and plan for this to be a jumping off point for further sustainable company initiatives,” he added. “As we innovate sustainable packaging options, we will use our Koleto team of designers and engineers to further create and develop marketable products in this new tier of packaging awareness. We look forward to working with the SPC and its members to collaborate and determine how we can reduce our environmental impact, and we’re excited for the innovative ideas and products that are to come.”
