Our Earth Day Promise

Born in the heart of Northern California, we at Care By Design have been deeply concerned about the impact of California’s new cannabis regulations on our beautiful state. These regulations mandate that cannabis goods must be packaged in resealable, child-resistant packaging, which is typically made of plastic. Annually, CannaCraft brands (including Care By Design and AbsoluteXtracts) produce about two million vape cartridges which means that we were looking at producing millions of plastic, child-resistant tubes that would end up in our landfills.

 

We decided that was unacceptable.

 

With all that waste weighing on our shoulders, we kept innovating and found a solution. By adding an additional step to the manufacturing process, we’re now able to make Care By Design CBD-rich vape cartridges that are inherently child resistant and don’t require additional plastic child-resistant packaging.

 

In addition to our new vapes being reliable and sleek, our cartridges have been certified as child-resistant under the requirements of the Poison Prevention Packaging Act.

 

We’re not the only ones who are thrilled about this. In a recent letter to CannaCraft, the CA Department of Public Health wrote:

 

“On behalf of our office, I would like to commend you for your diligence in adhering to both the letter and spirit of the law as you continue to pursue innovations in this emerging market… Because the cartridge model that you are using is now tested and certified as child resistant, child-resistant packaging does not need to be replicated on additional layers of packaging that surround the cartridge.”

 

So, how much plastic, exactly, are we cutting from our manufacturing process?

If you stacked one year's worth of child-resistant vape cartridge packaging, that stack would be 916,666 feet tall – or 30 times taller than Mount Everest (which is 29,000 ft).

At Care by Design, we promise that we’ll never stop innovating or caring for the planet; whether that means bringing you premium CBD-rich cannabis products or reducing our footprint wherever possible, it’s just what we do best.
