As herbal medicine becomes more popular, we all have to think more about where and how we are sourcing our plants. Our health shouldn't come at the expense of the planet's health.
Whenever it is possible, I strive to only purchase herbs grown sustainably within 100 miles of central Vermont, and only use locally grown organic hemp. As a card-carrying member of United Plant Savers, I try to use herbs that exist in abundance rather than at-risk or endangered species. And if you are located in a different part of the world than I am, I will work with you to discover sustainable options from your bioregion.
Additionally, I donate a portion of all income to environmental organizations such as the Indigenous Environmental Network, United Plant Savers, the National Parks Conservation Association, and others.
