A Commitment To Sustainability

Along with our product ethos, sustainable practices have been a conscious choice that we’ve made from the start. Before even launching a product, we did the extra work and research to find partners that felt the same way -- David / Founder Herb & Olive

Sustainability across our supply chain

We are making a conscious effort to make sustainable decisions along our supply chain. From the farms and extractors we partner with, to the packaging of products and even marketing materials. We are constantly looking for new and innovative ways to produce and dispose (or re-use) of our products. As a small business, we can’t do it all from the start, but we can definitely do our best. Here’s how we’ve done so far, knowing that we are always finding new ways to do our part to help the environment.
