We’ve Drawn a Line in the Soil
Our commitment to the Earth runs deep. We don’t use organic ingredients just to be trendy; we led that trend ourselves. Over 90% of our herbal ingredients are certified organic* because it helps us ensure the integrity of the soil from which they come, and helps protect the health of those who work on it. It’s why we use the highest possible percentage of post-consumer recycled materials in our packaging, raise millions of dollars every Earth Month for causes like clean water, and pioneer programs that protect people, wildlife, and the planet. We set an example in the industry, because we believe it’s not enough for business to do well—it must also do good.
