As one of the leading medical marijuana organizations in PA, we understand our responsibility is to not only produce quality products, but also to do so in a way that does not harm the environment. We have always cultivated our plants through natural, organic farming practices. Offsetting our carbon emissions is another step we are taking to reduce the strain on the environment and protect our planet for generations to come. We are strongly committed to our sustainability initiatives and focused on responsible consumption and production. Protecting our planet Earth is important to our patients, to our employees, and for the benefit of future generations.”
In addition to working with Carbonfund’s Carbonfree Certification Program to offset carbon emissions, Organic Remedies has utilized organic farming practices since the facility opened in 2020. These practices include collecting and reusing rainwater so there is no runoff; capturing CO2 from its boiler and reintroducing the CO2 to enhance the plants; integrated pest management using bio-control pests; planting thousands of trees surrounding the property. As part of Organic Remedies conservation efforts, it also uses efficient LED lighting systems to reduce power consumption. Organic Remedies is also working to reduce waste by offering its products in biodegradable bags and recyclable packaging. In addition, Organic Remedies plans to give away more than 6000 white pine seedlings to commemorate Earth Day 2023.
