Environmental Ethics

Sacred Medicine Sanctuary is proactive in many environmental pursuits, especially the need for planetary sustainability and plant conservation. We do our part to tread lightly by recycling peanuts and boxes used for packing and promoting the use of biodegradable personal hygiene products. We are as close to providing 100% organic or consciously wildcrafted products as is possible. We are not quite there with a few imported herbs used in certain formulas.
