For every cannabis plant that we harvest at Coast Mountain Cannabis, we will plant one tree. Our pledge is that over the next decade that we plant up to 300,000 trees. Our forests need your help and purchasing cannabis from Coast Mountain Cannabis is supporting the planet’s rejuvenation.
Love of the planet and an appreciation for our natural resources is our most important core value. We focus on reducing the use of natural resources in order to maintain an ecological balance. How do we do that?
At Coast Mountain Cannabis we:
- Do not use any artificial pesticides or fertilizers
- Our waste water is therefore clean and safe to be returned to the earth
- We recycle our organic soil back into community farms and gardens
- Operate using 100% renewable electricity
- Do not use plastic containers for packaging
- Plant one tree for every cannabis plant that is harvested
Why We Are Dedicated to Planting Trees
Trees are quintessential to the well-being of our planet, biodiversity, and reducing the harmful effects of climate change.
Reforestation, the intention of restocking/replanting trees, is identified by scientists as one of the top solutions to the climate crisis.
As a company, we stand behind a cause that truly unites everyone. The environment. There are a lot of great causes to support, but climate change is probably the single most important challenge that deeply impacts us all directly. Moreover, Coast Mountain Cannabis and its employees have deep roots in the Coastal Mountains of British Columbia. Being surrounded by this majestic natural landscape makes us more acutely aware of the need to preserve what we have and try and help restore what may have been lost, both here and around the world.
One Tree Planted is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit on a mission to make it simple for anyone to help the environment by planting trees. Their projects span the globe and are done in partnership with local communities and knowledgeable experts to create an impact for nature, people, and wildlife. Reforestation helps to rebuild forests after fires and floods, provide jobs for social impact, and restore biodiversity. Many projects have overlapping objectives, creating a combination of benefits that contribute to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
Why We Partnered with One Tree Planted
One Tree Planted has a strong reputable history as a registered charity with strong ties to Canada. They have a framework that is based on six pillars of a sustainable planet environment:
- Social Impact
We are in the business of planting, growing and harvesting cannabis. We are extremely conscious of our own environmental footprint and the resources we use. To plant one tree for every cannabis plant we harvest seemed like a simple and meaningful way for us to bring our business into alignment with the wellbeing of the planet.
Through our efforts to minimize waste and limit our use of non-renewable resources, we expect through our One Plant = One Tree pledge that we will become and remain a climate positive and carbon negative company.
