Endangered species are not just animals, birds, or insects...many plant species are also disappearing. We are proud to announce that The Middle Aged Spread is now a business partner with United Plant Savers, an organization founded 25 years ago by renowned ethnobotanist Susan Leopold. United Plant Savers' mission "is to protect native medicinal plants of the United States and Canada and their native habitat while ensuring an abundant renewable supply of medicinal plants for generations to come". Our business philosophy has always been to practice sustainable, respectful harvesting/growing of medicinal herbs for our products, while eschewing rampant over consumption of the latest hot commodity in the world of herbal medicine and beauty products - goldenseal, echinacea, osha, inmortal, wild ginseng, white sage, palo santo... So if you are a member of United Plant Savers (and why wouldn't you be?) you will receive 15% off all purchases at any time on our website, just use the code "unitedplantsavers15" at checkout if you are a member.
