Improving Lives Through the Power of Plants

Steeping tea on bed of herbs

Since the beginning, our purpose at Traditional Medicinals has remained constant. We connect people to the power of plants to change lives—the lives of the growers of our herbs across the 35 countries we source from and the lives of those who drink our wellness teas to improve their health.

This means, we keep people, plants and the planet at the heart of every decision. As we grow, we honor our responsibility to support them better.

As we approach our 45th year of business, we’d like to reflect upon our progress and share with you our efforts towards being good stewards of the planet and empowering partners within our sourcing communities. We are so proud of what we’ve accomplished in 2018 and invite you to celebrate with us.

Our Sustainability Partners

Certifications embody our values. We voluntarily adopt the strict standards associated with these partners because we believe they are important to ensuring healthy communities and a healthy planet.

Our 2018 Sustainability Highlights

People
True sustainability includes people. From our employees to the communities where we source our herbs, the social well-being of the people at the heart of Traditional Medicinals is important to our success.

Plants
We can’t do what we do without the plants. We are committed to high-quality, ethically-traded herbs that are good for you and the planet.

Planet
We take our mission to be good environmental stewards seriously. It is our goal to be a socially responsible business that takes clear steps to minimize our footprint and contribute positively to the challenge of climate change.

As climate change continues to affect our sourcing communities and the herbs we use, we are more committed than ever to our sustainability goals. We want to do our part to combat climate change, encourage resiliency, and empower the communities we partner with, especially as we continue to grow. Transparency and accountability are important to us, so we invite you to take a look at our full report and let us know how we’re doing. We hope it inspires others to set big goals and incorporate more sustainability practices into their business. Thanks for taking the time to celebrate the progress we made in 2018!
