Sustainability is at the core of what we do, from the way we plant, grow, water, harvest, and distribute our herbs.
Healthy Plants Start With Healthy Soil
On the Gaia Herbs Farm, the soil is enriched with organic fertilizers and biodynamic compost. Our farm contains an abundance of biodiversity, above and below the earth. Regenerative agriculture is the key to maintaining this biodiversity and protecting the health of the planet.
“We are growing more life than just the plants we harvest. We are really repairing the entire ecosystem.”– Thomas LeonardFarm Operations Manager
Keeping Our Planet Healthy
Collaborations and Alliances
In partnering with other like-minded brands, the goal is to take action, create climate solutions, and be a catalyst for change.
Our product cartons are made from 100% recycled paperboard sourced from FSC-Certified forests to not only save forests from deforestation but also save water, reduce landfill waste, and decrease CO2 emissions.
Climate Action Plan
The goal of our Climate Action Plan is to develop a roadmap to assess our climate impact and develop strategies to reduce our overall carbon footprint.
Biodiesel Tractor Fuel
Biodiesel is used in all our tractors on the Gaia Farm — made from recycled vegetable oil.
Protecting Our Pollinators
In addition to our swamp Milkweed plants for Monarch butterflies, our farm is home to several other species of pollinator-friendly plants, ensuring the health of our 200 beehives and encouraging biodiversity.
No-Tree, Carbon-Neutral Paper
We use ZeroTree paper, which is a no-tree paper derived from sugarcane pulp, as our standard copy paper in all our offices.
