The SHP Sustainability & Regenerative Practices Toolkit – Sustainable Herbs Program
Please watch this video introduction to the free SHP Toolkit
Becoming Better Stewards
How can companies sourcing medicinal plants from around the world become better stewards for the people, plants, and ecosystems on which they depend?
The SHP Sustainability and Regenerative Practices Toolkit is a collection of practical resources and best practices, specific to the herb and botanical business sectors, that businesses of any size can utilize to become more socially and environmentally responsible. Ultimately, it provides an ethos of caring for the people and planet from where herbs originate.
This guide provides useful resources and inspiring ideas to deepen existing efforts to solve issues of sustainable stewardship and regenerative collaboration with plants, planet, and people. We also hope it awakens conversations within and among companies about how to collaborate to address pressing challenges including urban migration (of wildcrafters), over-harvesting, soil depletion, climate impacts, and non-point contamination, among others.
