Sustainability

Honoring Our Commitment to Plants, People, Place and Purpose

The year 2018 marked Gaia’s 31st year in business and was an incredible year of growth at our company, making “growth” an appropriate theme for our 2018 Sustainability Report. Financial growth and profitability are critical to our business, as they enable us to continue sharing our products with more people and invest in our sustainability programs. At Gaia Herbs, growth also encompasses how we expand our social impact programs, how we nurture and care for the earth, and how we cultivate and grow our dedication to the health, happiness, and professional development of our employees. In this context, profit is not a means to an end, but a vehicle to grow our mission: To cultivate health and well-being by stewarding the sustainable relationship between plants and people.

Ecologically Harvested is a term that describes all herbs sold by Gaia Herbs that are not Certified Organic. Ecologically Harvested herbs include herbs that are harvested in their natural habitat, (i.e., wild harvested) according to specific guidelines for harvesting these herbs (i.e., away from roads and industry, as well as guidelines to avoid overharvesting). Our term, Ecologically Harvested, also includes herbs that are grown in managed woodland areas, fields designated for specific herbs, and herbs that are grown by indigenous growers, such as Kava Kava. All Ecologically Harvested herbs pass pesticide and heavy metal testing as well as microbial testing, prior to release.
