Using stories, videos and facts, the project will encourage greater support for developing sustainable supply chains, provide resources for smaller botanical companies to do so, and launch a more educated consumer movement to back high-quality botanicals with ethical sourcing.

Ann Armbrecht, Ph.D., and Terrence Yolk, producers of the award-winning documentary “Numen: the Nature of Plants," will gather stories from people involved in each sector of the botanical industry to document how sustainable and transparent supply chains are created, as well as the impact the supply chains have on biodiversity conservation.
