At the marijuana packaging plant, every one of us go through a lot of small glass jars, every month I order thoUSAnds of tiny glass jars so every one of us can put a small amount of marijuana concentrate in each one of them; The amount of marijuana concentrate barely fills the bottom of the jar, but every one of us still have to create a product that can withstand high temperatures due to vaping, however i buy all of my glass jars from a arena that is located out west.
The glass supplier makes more than 2 odd products, but they have a contract with myself and others to provide 13 ounce jars at .21 each.
That contract was up in June and I knew that the owner was going to raise the prices sooner or later. I recently got a call from the owner of the corporation, because he was planning to raise prices again this month. I spoke with the manufacturer about the products and agreed that I would pay the extra 2 cents per jar now, but the price cannot go up again for 2 years. I hope that will keep myself and others at the same price for a while. I have also considered going with a odd supplier after the contract is up. I can go with a supplier that uses a plastic tote with a silicone insert. The plastic tote with silicone insert works out well for more than 2 odd marijuana products, even though I think it is a cheap option compared to glass. I guess it costs a little bit extra to get glass but it is also recyclable and that makes myself and others know better about my carbon footprint on the planet.
