Giving Back What Nature Has Given Us: Our Sustainability Story

May 6, 2024 | Health & Wellness

In nature, everything is connected. From the tiniest microbes to the tallest trees, each element plays a vital role in the intricate web of life. We understand that we are an integral part of this web, and as a company rooted in nature, we believe it’s our responsibility to honor and preserve these connections, to give back to the Earth that sustains us.


Our journey begins with the sourcing of our ingredients. We’ve cultivated deep, long-standing partnerships with suppliers and farmers who share our reverence for nature’s interconnectedness. In China, we’ve worked with the same vendor for over 40 years, collaborating with farmers to ethically harvest the finest traditional Chinese herbs for our TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) line. Additionally, for over two decades, we’ve unlocked the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda by forging profound partnerships with local cultivators across India’s rich landscapes. Through respectful collaboration, we ethically source potent Ayurvedic herbs steeped in centuries of tradition.


When it comes to manufacturing, we harness the power of the elements. Our 250,000 sq. ft. facility in Spanish Fork, Utah is entirely solar-powered, while our operations across Europe are fueled by wind energy. By utilizing renewable resources, we craft our products in a way that recognizes the interconnectedness of energy and environment, reducing our carbon footprint.


We’ve re-imagined our packaging to reflect the principles of interconnectedness. Our innovative Chlorophyll stick packs mark a vital shift from liquid to powdered form, drastically reducing , water usage, and transportation emissions. This shift not only benefits the environment but also makes it more convenient for our customers to incorporate our products into their daily lives. Across our product lines, we’re continuously exploring ways to minimize waste. choice is a small way of honoring the connections between our products, our customers, and our posterity.


Our commitment to interconnectedness ripples out beyond our own operations. We work hand-in-hand with our suppliers to promote sustainable practices, understanding that our actions have far-reaching consequences. We empower our customers to make eco-conscious choices by offering products that are kind to the Earth, recognizing that their well-being is intimately tied to the health of the planet. By acting as stewards of the environment, we create a positive impact that reverberates through the entire web of life.


At Nature’s Sunshine, sustainability is a way of honoring the profound interconnectedness of all things. Because in nature, everything is connected, and we’re committed to caring for that connection, one mindful action at a time.
