We deeply care about keeping the Earth healthy and vibrant, and do our best to design our smoking tools with sustainability in mind.
The high grade cork used to join our glass blunts, and cap our vials and vaporizers is a renewable resource that is also completely recyclable. Instead of being resigned to sit in a landfill for years, our cork can be recycled at one of many cork recycling drop boxes, as well as biodegrade naturally.

Our pocket smoking kit cases are made of 100% Organic Cotton that was grown to sewn in the USA. This means its soft, strong and sustainable, and its all-natural construction makes it biodegradable.
We use borosilicate glass, what Pyrex is made of, for all of our glass smoking tools because of its ability to withstand very high temperatures and rapid changes from hot to cold. Unfortunately, because of its resistance to melting at high temperatures, it cannot be recycled with non-borosilicate glass bottles and containers. This means most curbside recycling programs currently do not accept borosilicate glass for recycling. In fact, if pyrex or any other type of borosilicate glass is put in your curbside recycling by accident, it can cause major problems in the production of recycled glass products. Since the high temperature glass will not melt in the recycling process, finished products using recycled glass will end up with small glass stones making them structurally unsound.
Finally, all of our products are easily disassemble-able into their respective parts, making them easier to recycle and reuse. If one piece breaks it’s not a total loss, all you need to do is replace that single piece and you’re good to go.
Did you know borosilicate glass was not accepted for curbside recycling? Is there another little known recycling no-no?
