Our Philosophy

By Shirley Leigh-Wood Oakes

At Luci­da­Club, we are com­mit­ted to build­ing a com­pa­ny that has sus­tain­abil­i­ty at its cen­tre. Our founder & CEO, Jack Roo­sevelt, believes in reimag­in­ing every aspect of the cannabis retail expe­ri­ence while car­ing for the envi­ron­ment. Our goal is to pro­vide you with a safe, con­ve­nient and an enjoy­able ser­vice and cannabis prod­ucts, while work­ing towards being as envi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly and car­bon neu­tral as we can.

We start­ed by review­ing the com­pa­ny and the ser­vice we are set to deliv­er for our cus­tomers. We iden­ti­fied an area of our com­pa­ny that would poten­tial­ly pro­duce the most waste, our pack­ing. We are pas­sion­ate about our pack­ag­ing, but we don’t want it to have a neg­a­tive impact. It is an essen­tial area for our busi­ness and for our cus­tomers. It needs to be func­tion­al and attrac­tive but we under­stand that it’s pack­ag­ing, you are prob­a­bly not going to keep it for­ev­er (don’t wor­ry, we under­stand). which means its usage is short. It was impor­tant to us that when our pack­ag­ing has served its pur­pose that it does­n’t impact the environment.

So we turned to EcoEn­close to help us design and pro­duce pack­ag­ing that was as sus­tain­able as we could be. Work­ing with EcoEn­clave means that our pack­ing saves resources, reduces water con­sump­tion and releas­es few­er green­house gas­es. The out­er box, cor­ru­gat­ed bub­ble wrap and inserts are all made for recy­clable mate­ri­als. The ink used on our box­es is Algae Ink (black ink) and hydro-soy ink (cus­tom col­or inks). We are rather fond of our Algae Ink as it’s rather cool. It’s the future of ink. 

Algae Ink is a rev­o­lu­tion­ary ink devel­oped by Liv­ing Ink Tech­nolo­gies that uti­lizes algae cells for pig­ments, mak­ing it safer and clean­er to work with, and more com­pat­i­ble with the recy­cling and com­post­ing process. 

So, as part of our mis­sion as a com­pa­ny, we are offer­ing Luci­da­Club cus­tomers and mem­bers eco-friend­ly, pre­mi­um, and ele­gant pack­ag­ing to dis­creet­ly trans­port their prod­ucts from our retail­er part­ners to their homes.

Anoth­er key area of focus was with our prod­ucts and retail­er part­ners. We hand­pick each retail­er based on their cus­tomer expe­ri­ence and sus­tain­able poli­cies to mir­ror, where pos­si­ble, our vision and val­ues. It’s not always easy, but we are trying! 

This is just the begin­ning. It’s a jour­ney, and as we grow and devel­op we are always striv­ing to do things bet­ter, and that includes being as sus­tain­able as we can while mak­ing sure not to affect the offer­ing or experience. 

We will con­tin­ue to keep updat­ed on the efforts we are tak­ing and look for­ward to includ­ing how our actions are impact­ing the environment.

Any ques­tions, get in touch. We would love to hear from you with ideas, sug­ges­tions and comments.
