The cannabis industry is reported to generate 150M tons of waste annually so what can we do about it. How do we turn from a cost center into a tool to build your brand and create new revenue? The WasteTrakr team looked at a market that gets paid by the number of barrels and takes it to a landfill. We created a path by which recycling efforts can be documented and enables the business to show its impact on carbon footprint and sustainability and share the good news with your customers.
