Sustainable + Restorative
Our Commitment to Sustainability
At Herbaland, we believe that a sustainable world is made through prioritizing our environment and our community, while taking actions that respect the earth's natural process. We are committed to improving the future of the planet and the future of generations to come.
Through our sustainable packaging, manufacturing, and other initiatives, we hope to inspire other companies to step up and make their own changes to prioritize sustainability. We will only make a difference if we work together!
In April 2022, we began switching our gummies from plastic bottles to compostable packaging! Our new packaging is made from natural and sustainably sourced ingredients including cassava, sugar cane, and cornstarch. Since the launch of our new packaging, we have diverted over 10 tons of plastic bottles from landfills!
From Sustainable to Restorative
Starting in 2022, we are doing our best to plant one tree for every pouch sold, with a long term goal of planting 2.5 million trees with our partner, veritree. We want to support a restorative economy, not just a sustainable one, and create a healthier planet for generations to come.
Protecting Bears with Raincoast Conservation Foundation
We’ve partnered with Raincoast to support their conservation efforts in the Great Bear Rainforest, and protect bears and other species. Through this partnership, we’re able to better protect biodiversity in BC!
Climate Smart Certified
We’re proud to be Climate Smart Certified! Working with Radicle, we’ve set a goal to minimize carbon emissions by focusing on strategies aimed at heating, transportation, and waste in our facilities. Our mission is to continue making informed environmental decisions and implement innovative sustainable solutions to create a positive impact on the environment.
Herbaland has partnered with Mobi by Shaw Go to provide brand new e-bikes for the City of Vancouver and promote greener ways of getting around. Transport emissions are the single largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in our region, making e-bikes a more sustainable travel option than cars!
The Great Shoreline Clean Up
To support our local environment and community Herbaland has joined Ocean Wise’s environmental cleanup initiative, The Great Shoreline Cleanup! This initiative provides the opportunity for anyone to take action in their communities wherever water meets land, one bit of trash at a time. The Herbaland team gets involved in local cleanups every few months.
At our manufacturing facility in Richmond, BC, we use a unique Eco-Forming technology that replaces traditional starch molds with reusable stainless steel molds. Gummies made through this innovative process create much less waste and prevent cross-contamination.
We strive to provide inclusive products for people with diverse dietary restrictions. We choose high-quality plant-based ingredients from suppliers who align with our values of sustainability and inclusivity, prioritizing certified gluten-free, non-GMO, vegan, and sugar-free options.
Sustainability Development Goals
To make our commitment to our values and make our mission clear, Herbaland has aligned its goals as a business to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These goals act as a blueprint for a better and sustainable future for everyone, and we have chosen four key goals to focus on as a company.
