Sustainable Sourcing and Fair Trade
Sustainable Sourcing: How We Do It.
Most wild-harvested herbs are collected without regard for the long-term effects on the species in question or the environment. Many widely used plants with potential health benefits are threatened and in danger of going extinct. In addition, other plants are not available as a result of protective legislation.
These problems are widespread across the globe
Linden Botanicals Supports Sustainable Sourcing and Harvesting
Linden Botanicals strives to our part to reverse this trend. First, we support sustainable projects that use ecologically friendly methods of farming and harvesting. Second, we work with our partner farms to promote a culture of naturecrafting. This practice helps prevent over-harvesting by teaching and encouraging natural setting cultivation. It also encourages respect for the life of the plant and the use of sustainable techniques like root dividing, pruning, and seed collection and re-planting.
In addition, we support local programs that create value in sustaining the environment rather than abusing it. One such program helps reverse expanding desertification in the Gobi.
Linden Botanicals supports non-violent fair trade. Our product stream does no violence to the environment. We also pay a fair trade price for our products. In addition, our product stream supports fair labor conditions, as well as local community involvement and development.
