Drum roll please… introducing Mountain Rose Herbs’ new employee-led Green Team!

Our Green Team is committed to environmentally and socially conscious operating practices by informing and motivating co-workers about waste reduction, energy and water conservation, alternative transportation options, workplace giving, and volunteer opportunities. This fantastic group works with the Director of Sustainability and serves as a resource to co-workers. Each member brings something unique to the table. We look forward to sharing ideas at our monthly meetings and continuing to improve our sustainability initiatives for everyone here at Mountain Rose!
