GARDEN GROVE, Calif., October 23, 2018 – KushCo Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: KSHB) (“KushCo” or the “Company”), the parent company of innovative cannabis industry leaders such as Kush Supply Co., Kush Energy, The Hybrid Creative, and Koleto Packaging Solutions, which provide a range of services and products for the regulated cannabis, CBD and other related industries, today announced that it has joined the Sustainable Packaging Coalition (“SPC”), a membership-based collaborative that is considered the leading voice on sustainable packaging solutions.
As a member of the SPC, KushCo will collaborate with other companies in a variety of industries, each involved in developing and employing environmentally-friendly packaging solutions that fit each company’s unique products and consumer demands. Other SPC members include notable companies such as The Coca-Cola Company, McDonald’s, Mars, Incorporated, Procter & Gamble, Starbucks Coffee, United Parcel Service (UPS) and Walmart, among others.
“Joining the Sustainable Packaging Coalition is a milestone not only for our company but for cannabis industry as whole.

We look forward to working with the SPC and its members to collaborate and determine how we can reduce our environmental impact and we’re excited for the innovative ideas and products which are to come.”
