Materials Used, How To Recycle Your Laka

We are doing the best we can to ensure that both our products potency is preserved, our footprint remains small, and our customers have the most straightforward option when it comes to figuring out what happens after their LAKA is gone. Where can you recycle it? What is it made out of? We will continue to update this editorial as packaging changes/improves.
