    “Dare to be bold, Canna-Waste-Not”

    finding new ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle waste. The Cannabis section will be extending the life of the plant from waste, to a new product as an absorbent for emergency response spills. Currently non-organic materials are used as the industry standard absorbents for hazardous material clean up operations and are contributing to landfills. Utilizing cannabis plant material as the absorbent removes many harmful contaminants from the waste cycle. This project will also be creating green jobs and a greener future for our fellow Angelenos.
