Around 3,000 medicinal and aromatic plants are traded internationally, with the majority (60-90%) harvested directly from the wild.
Unfortunately most wild plants are harvested and traded with little consideration for sustainability or whether local harvesters are fairly paid or treated with dignity and respect for the products they produce. FairWild certification allows you to know that your favourite products are being made with ingredients that were harvested ethically and fairly.
In collaboration with TRAFFIC and the FairWild Foundation, we will be highlighting plants that are harvested directly from the wild to make everyday consumer products such as teas, cosmetics and herbal remedies. Come and find us in the Glasshouse Range during the Cambridge Festival (31 March to 10 April) and discover which of your favourite products have wild plant ingredients. You’ll also be introduced to some plants that are the most likely to be at risk of over-harvesting, known as the Wild Dozen.
