The definition of sustainability, itself, implies the responsibility to be a good steward of the earth. Through traditional cultivation and harvesting techniques, we actively promote biodiversity and sustainable wild-crafting of important medicinal plants and herbs. Additionally, we have made significant efforts to promote sustainable agriculture for our botanical raw materials.

In conjunction to these efforts, a number of eco-friendly initiatives are in place. For example, one manufacturing facility has increased its use of solar and thermal energy to maximize efficiency. The byproduct plant material remaining after processing is also utilized to heat the facility, and donated to local farmers to use as fertilizer.
