We are proud to be not just for profit and activists for plant freedom.

A business is a reflection of your own values, and we value the interconnected nature of all life. None of us are separate. Our beliefs, actions and behaviour affect the world, and all those who we share it with. That is why we commit to giving back, to acting responsibly and with integrity in our work and our lives."

Giving Back

Happy Herbs was founded to promote awareness and education about herbs. Due to our success, we’ve been able to expand upon that mission to become a social enterprise. This is a business that understands our position as custodians of our planet and communities, and seeks to give back as much as it gets.

More than 10% of the company’s profit is set aside for community projects and good causes, including Humanitarian, Conservation, Plant Freedom, and Animal Welfare, organisations, as well as artists and creative projects.
