Cool Jarz is an Earthwise Packaging product line. This product line provides a wide range of packaging with the option of custom designs. They make roll tubes, cartridges, plastic mint containers, screw-top jars, and more. They work with companies to create their packaging, shrink sleeve labels, and specific branding. One of the common questions they get asked is how are the products benefiting the environment. Current society has moved drastically into single-use items and relies heavily on plastics due to the fact they are lightweight, easy to ship, inexpensive to make, and disposable. The problem is that there is so much single-use plastic being used that it is negatively impacting the environment. Here are three ways this packaging line is benefiting the environment.
All of the packaging made under this product line is recyclable. Instead of throwing it away and having it end up in a landfill, consumers can recycle the packages once they are done with them and have them converted into other products. Most cities have recycling programs that allow residents to easily recycle household recyclable trash alongside their weekly trash pickup. At CoolJarz, recycling is part of their identity. They are skilled in “re-grinding” most plastic containers for cannabis products in order to convert them into brand new tubes, containers jars, and vials.
There are many reasons why recycling is important for the environment. For one, it helps reduce the amount of waste that goes into our landfills and incinerators. This is important because it helps protect our environment and prevents harmful gases from entering our air. Recycling also helps conserve energy and resources. For example, it takes significantly less energy to recycle aluminum cans than it does to produce new aluminum cans from scratch. This is important because it helps reduce our reliance on fossil fuels, which can contribute to climate change.
Many of the containers created under this line have lids that can be fastened, and they are good quality plastic, so they can be reused around the house for other things. Reusing an item is even more beneficial than recycling it because the energy utilized for recycling plastics is conserved. CoolJarz uses a thinner line of polypropylene tubes and containers developed to use up to 50% less plastic than another plastic packaging on the market. With a lot fewer plastic containers used and fully recyclable, this line of packaging can be repurposed for other uses.
There are many reasons why it’s important to use reusable containers, but one of the most important reasons is to help protect the environment. Disposable plastic and styrofoam containers create a lot of waste and can take hundreds and even thousands of years to decompose. By using reusable containers instead, we can help reduce the amount of waste that ends up in our landfills and oceans. Reusable containers are also more cost-effective in the long run. Disposable containers can be expensive, and they often end up being thrown away after just one use. Reusable containers can be used over and over again, which makes them a more economical choice in the long run.
CoolJarz product packaging is known for its durability so it isn’t easily damaged during production or shipping which may create additional waste. Packaging is an important part of the product life cycle. Durability protects products during shipping and helps keep them to stay clean and organized on store shelves. Non-durable packaging can have a negative impact on the environment with plastic packaging being one of the biggest contributors to marine pollution. A single plastic bottle can take up to 1,000 years to decompose, and if it’s not recycled, it can pollute waterways and landscapes. That’s why it’s important to use durable, recyclable packaging whenever possible. When you choose products with recyclable packaging, you’re doing your part to help protect the environment.
