Sustainable Sourcing

 

Most Ayurvedic herbs are wild-harvested without regard for long-term effects on the species or the environment. Many widely used plants are threatened and in danger of being unavailable either through extinction or protective legislation. Banyan Botanicals is working to reverse this trend by supporting sustainable projects that use ecologically friendly methods of farming and harvesting.

Our Partner Farms

  • Prevent over-harvesting through cultivation in natural forest settings
  • Harvest with respect for the life of the plant
