Arizona Cannabis Company is trailblazer in Eco-friendly Practices
The Pharm, a 320,000-square-foot Dutch glass greenhouse grow operation and cannabis brand based in Phoenix, Arizona, is proud to announce significant investments in eco-friendly production standards that prove that you don’t have to pay more for a premium product that respects the plant, the planet and the people.
Harnessing the power of the ample Arizona sun at their Willcox grow facility, The Pharm also exclusively utilizes eco-friendly growing practices, such as using an underground geothermal well to naturally heat water, recycling runoff water, and composting organic waste to keep energy use low and limit environmental impact.
Plus, The Pharm’s state-of-the-art R&D and highly-trained production teams ensure that each strain is cared for in the most natural way possible, maximizing flavors, taste and quality, while maintaining high yields and strict eco-efficiency standards. All of which combines to make The Pharm the leader in high-quality, affordable and sustainably-grown cannabis.
“Being located here in Willcox is critical to our sustainability,” says Charles Crum, a Cultivation Quality Manager with The Pharm. “We have lots of sun which the plants love, but it’s also a cooler climate thanks to the higher elevation, which creates the ideal growing conditions of a lot of light without too much heat.
Eco-efficiency is at the heart of our operation because we already have these great elements at hand: sun, soil, well water, and very little electricity required.”
This investment also has consumer-facing benefits, as The Pharm partnered with One Tree Planted to put the planet first, one seedling at a time, by planting one new tree with every One Tree Planted stamped product purchase, reaching the goal of planting 200,000 trees by the end of 2022.
It’s just the latest effort from this sun-grown Arizona cannabis company to push the industry towards more responsible production patterns, inviting consumers to rethink the brands and products they support, and always putting the planet first.
“Working with One Tree Planted is a great fit for The Pharm,” says Matt Daley, VP of Marketing for The Pharm and Sunday Goods. “Sustainability is at the core of our business model, and planting trees is one of the best ways to help preserve our planet.”
Alongside donating one tree for each and package of stamped product sold; The Pharm has also committed to switching to plastic-free packaging by 2023, and lowering its carbon footprint to begin a path to carbon neutrality in 2024.
