Benefits of Compostable Doob Tubes

April 27th, 2022

 

Doob tubes are great for storing your pre-rolls when you’re on the move or need someplace safe to store them. The one problem is that most are made of plastic. Today we’re looking at the plastic problem and the benefits of switching to compostable doob tubes!

The Plastic Problem

Have you ever stopped to think about how much plastic you use daily and where it ends up? The US produces the most plastic in the world – roughly 42 million metric tons per YEAR. On top of that, there are at least 14 million tons of plastic ending up in our oceans each year!

Doesn’t Plastic Get Recycled?

Believe it or not, most plastic doesn’t actually get recycled, despite your best efforts. In fact, 91% of plastic isn’t getting recycled. Instead, it ends up in landfills or is burned for fuel.

Why Choose a Compostable Doob Tube?

Glass House Farms is making it easier than ever to ditch plastic with our compostable doob tubes for single 1G pre-rolls. They’re made of plant-based bioplastics which means you can bury them in your backyard or toss it in your compost bin and they will fully decompose into non-toxic mulch in 6-12 months.

You can also put it in your curbside bins for industrial composting if your city offers that service! If not and they end up in the landfill, they will break down at a much faster rate than traditional plastic. Lastly, our doob tubes are made in the USA, meanwhile, most are coming from China and have to travel around the globe.
