Puffin Farm is Sun+Earth Certified
We are proud to announce that Puffin Farm is now Sun+Earth Certified. Sun+Earth is a new regenerative cannabis standard: “We certify cannabis that is grown under the sun, in the soil of mother earth, without chemicals by fairly-paid farmers.”
The three pillars of Sun+Earth Certification are:
- Earth Care & Cultivation
- Human Empowerment
- Community Engagement
“Sun+Earth certifies that cannabis brands are holistically, responsibly, and regeneratively grown for the well-being of all people, farmers, and the planet. We set the standard above and beyond organic.”
Coming soon! Look for the Sun+Earth Certification on the Puffin Farm package. Photos by @david_goodman_photos.
The Sun+Earth Standard is a new regenerative cannabis standard. It was created with the help of a Technical Advisory Committee comprised of cannabis farmers, certification professionals, and environmental and social activists. The Technical Advisory Committee met eight times in 2018 to discuss the development of the standards. A pilot program to ground-truth and test the standards was conducted during the summer and fall of 2018. A total of 14 farms in Northern California participated in the Pilot Program. The Pilot Program farmers also contributed feedback and advice for the successful implementation of this new third party certification. The Sun+Earth Certified standards are intended to go beyond current minimum requirements for organic farming. Indeed, several of the requirements go much further and merit further discussion, and exploration. The language and concepts expressed in this standard were carefully designed to meet minimum organic standards as defined by the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM). A guidance tool developed by IFOAM called the Common Objectives and Requirements of Organic Standards (COROS) was used to help ensure that these standards align with organic agricultural movements from around the world.
