In 2022, Plascon Plastic was granted $600,000 from “The CleanBC Plastics Action Fund.” This find was put in place by the BC government to create new opportunities from recycled plastic. This grant was used to help create the first child-safe cannabis container made from 100% recycled plastic.
In collaboration with Uneka, a packaging design and development company based in California, we have designed a prototype plastic cannabis tray made from 100% PCR plastic that will be manufactured locally here in Delta.
This first-of-its-kind products, combines the PCR manufacturing expertise of our facility, with the design experience of Uneka. This gives us a visually appealing product that contains 100% recycled materials.
