CALGARY, AB- High Tide Inc. ("High Tide" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: HITI) (TSXV: HITI) (FSE: 2LYA), the high-impact, retail-forward enterprise built to deliver real-world value across every component of cannabis, celebrates Earth Day tomorrow, through its continued commitment of recycling plastic from cannabis packaging in conjunction with its packaging recycling partner, [Re] Waste. Cannabis packaging is unique, as cannabis is a highly regulated product and is packaged in single-use plastic, which is difficult to recycle within the existing municipal programs.

High Tide and [Re] Waste have partnered together to reduce the environmental impact of cannabis products by placing collection points within all Canna Cabana retail store locations nationwide. Cabana Club, including its ELITE members and all cannabis consumers, are able to drop their used cannabis containers into the bins, which to date, has contributed towards the diversion of over 20,000 pounds of plastic from ending up in landfills and littering our communities. Through this initiative, both Alberta-based companies High Tide and [Re] Waste are making an impact across the nation for greater environmental sustainability.

"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," said Raj Grover, President and Chief Executive Officer of High Tide.

"In recognition of Earth Day, we are sharing our progress on this valuable and important initiative to motivate our industry partners to do the same. As our business expands in Canada and internationally, we will continue to think innovatively to further these environmentally friendly initiatives to play our part in the sustainability of our industry and upholding our responsibility for our planet," added Mr. Grover.

"[Re] Waste is thrilled to have partnered with High Tide and to have contributed to the diversion of over 20,000 pounds of plastic waste from landfills through our innovative recycling program for cannabis packaging. As a company dedicated to creating a circular economy for the cannabis industry, we understand the importance of sustainable solutions for hard-to-recycle materials like cannabis packaging. Through our partnership with High Tide and our network of collection points at Canna Cabana retail locations, we are able to collect, sort, and transform used cannabis packaging into reusable and functional products for the industry. We are proud to be part of High Tide's commitment to sustainability and look forward to continuing our efforts to create a more sustainable future for the cannabis industry," said Corey Saban, C.E.T, Founder and CEO of [Re] Waste.
