At Garden Remedies, we believe that mitigating the climate impact of medicinal cannabis is just as vital as medical cannabis itself. For that reason we’ve developed a series of innovative plans to reduce our own footprint across the weeks, months, and years to come.
Read on for details about some of what we’re doing now, some of what we’ll be doing in the future, and even some ways that you can help out yourself:
Measured our carbon emissions through Radical, a certified independent partner.
We perform biannual waste audits within our cultivation and manufacturing facility.
Our goal is to divert 25% of landfill waste by June 2023.

Environmental Goals: Set target emission goals by 2023, Continue tracking our emission year over year, retrofit lights to LEDs by 2024, research ways to recirculate our water.
Governance Goals: Define our brand, culture, and mission statements while increasing our market share. Internally we hope to improve multi-departmental communication.
Social Goals: Continue recruiting in areas disproportionately impacted by the war on drugs, eliminate the gender pay gap by 2022, hire a employee health and safety officer, hire a communications manager, and expand our in person volunteer opportunities. Continue innovating new products by increasing the number of strains and yields, increasing product potency and taste for lab produced products, and creating savory products.
A goal for 2022 for all manufacturing departments at GRI is to create a framework that will track and review each step of a given process to better understand the possible variables, and to let us communicate and/or make written records more efficiently when product issues arise.
