Appreciation for Mother Earth demands our participation in the fight to save her. At Dama Distributing, we work hard every day to inform, inspire and empower humanity to rise to the challenge of social and responsible consciousness.
Single-use plastic waste created by the Cannabis and Hemp industries has been an unfortunate side effect of the industry. Creating a need to develop sustainable and compliant packaging solutions, Cole Gibbs founded Dama Distributing.
We believe that sustainability is a joint effort. Dama Distributing realizes one’s impact can accelerate the world's transition to a new era of development, growth, and bettering our planet. Every step toward that goal creates a positive ripple effect – no matter how small – making a conscious choice of what we use and how we use plastics can no longer be ignored. Collaborations with Market Leaders who are forthcoming with their responsibility in this global effort are paramount. Bold, innovative new materials will drive ambition to share knowledge and inspire audiences to act.
Being mindful of our actions to cause no unnecessary harm is something we are proud of. Still, the true satisfaction comes from being associated with like-minded achievers seeking the opportunity for long-term environmental prosperity, now and in future generations.
With the various environmental challenges and climate changes happening globally, we strongly believe in the importance of taking active steps toward eliminating plastic waste. We choose to make the world's most respected, socially conscious solutions with the most sustainable materials available. By pioneering new products and materials, hemp has and will continue to be an amazing tool for combating climate change. Hemp is a carbon-negative plant which means it sequesters more carbon than it releases. Converting the leftover biomass produced by the Cannabis and Hemp industries into plastics, fabrics, paper, or concretes locks away the carbon even longer.
At Dama Distributing we only work with infinity recyclable materials, including glass, steel, and home compostable plant plastics. Additionally, our labels are printed with water-based inks in a carbon-neutral facility powered by the wind. We only work with these types of products because using materials that require commercial composting to break down does not solve the problem. Most commercial composting facilities will not take bioplastics to break down, and those that will are very rare. If these materials are not properly disposed of, they will act like regular plastics and take years to decompose. While only 9% of all petroleum plastics are recycled worldwide, the plastic waste problem is growing out of control. Dama Distributing is on a mission to eliminate single-use plastic waste by offering truly sustainable packaging solutions for everything from seeds to concentrates. Dama Distributing eliminates over 3.5 tons of petroleum plastic packaging from the industry every month with the World’s First and Only Sustainable Child Resistant Hemp Plastic Containers released in 2019 and followed by the World’s First and Only Home Compostable Pre-roll Tubes in 2021.
……..we would like to thank you for sharing and continuing this journey with us.
“Together we end plastic pollution.” -Cole Gibbs, Founder & CEO Dama Distributing
