Co-event organizer Alexis Kafkis: “When it becomes apparent how destructive industrial-scale cannabis production is to the environment, you won’t be able to ignore it. It’s time to move past the novelty of legal cannabis and become more mindful of the integrity of the cannabis products we put in our bodies—where was it grown and how was it cultivated? Our purchasing decisions can have a significant impact on the environment. It doesn’t make any sense to eat organic foods but smoke industrially grown and chemically-treated cannabis. Right now, the cannabis industry’s youth and emerging, offers us an opportunity to instill values which will help us move towards regenerative practices. Together, we can do the right thing for the planet by using this plant.‘420PPM ON4/20’ We look forward to working with you and your partners to educate consumers about how to do it.

David BronnerFounder of Brother David’sThe first Sun+Earth Certified cannabis brand, ‘The Sun+Earth’ California. “Regenerative organic farming promotes soil health and community health, and reduces the impact of climate change by sequestering carbon. To make matters worse, indoor cultivation of chemical-intensive cannabis under fossil-fueled light is being done. It is as important to choose sungrown, regenerative cannabis as it is to choose organic food. We are at a crucial point in our history where we must fundamentally shift the cannabis industry towards a more eco-friendly model.
