In honor of National Small Business Month, we’d like to take a moment to celebrate our fellow [local] small businesses.
When we first began providing care publicly we determined what kind of business we wanted to be. For us, success was something far greater than profit alone. We knew as a business we would be a member of our community and our actions would have a great impact on the world around us.
As a responsible business we are committed to:
- Providing the highest-quality herbal and nutritional supplements available by offering carefully-vetted products. Whenever possible we opt for organic, GMO-free, pesticide-free, soy-free, hypo-allergenic, and filler & preservative-free alternatives.
- Treading gently on the environment by carrying low-impact, sustainably harvested herbal supplements and carrying quality products in recyclable, reusable and biodegradable packaging when available
- Ensuring a safe, healthy and flexible work environment with competitive wages for our team members
- Supporting small businesses and local producers by shopping local and bringing the best locally, small business produced products to our customers.
We are a proud Sonoma County GoLocal member and encourage you to check out some of our favorite local businesses!
