We're Working Towards a Cleaner, Brighter Future
We believe in mindful manufacturing aimed at reducing energy, water use, and emissions.
All lids are manufactured with zero material waste due to our bi-injection molding process. This eliminates the need for any adhesives, foams, or other materials to create the seal.
We don't take material selection lightly. From Hemp Plastic to compostable materials, we've explored the vast majority of sustainable options. We landed on the Polypropylene for our Dram containers and lids and glass for our Concentrate Containers.
According to GreenBlue.Org only about 11% of Americans have access to industrial composting facilities that take packaging. That, in addition to other similar statistics brought us to select materials that the majority of Americans can recycle curbside.
We have prioritized product preservation and closing the recycling loop.
We manufacture our drams and lids state-side. Is it more expensive? Yes. But it's worth it. Our domestic supply chain allows for better control over our resources and helps us cut down on carbon emissions during transportation.
For Calyx, delivering an efficient cannabis processing and storage solution goes hand in hand with ecological responsibility. Our container and inventory management system's novel design saves materials, space, and contributes to saving the planet.
Our packaging is designed to be reliable, reusable, and easily recyclable. The secondary gasket seal in our lid design is safe for recycling, too, with no removal necessary!
Our Dram containers are made with food-grade polypropylene (#5). White and Clear labels are also made of polypropylene so they can be recycled right alongside their plastic containers.
A Minimal amount of material is used during manufacturing. There are zero adhesives or secondary components in our lids.
Our square shape and grid-based inventory management system optimizes and saves 18% more space when compared to the footprint of a standard round container.
Our dram containers and lids are manufactured in the U.S. which means faster delivery with fewer emissions. Manufacturing inside the U.S. also means we follow strict environmental regulations.
Spatial optimization means fewer shipments than the standard packaging. Fewer shipments means lower transit costs and a smaller carbon footprint.
