About us

GOOD Botanics make environmentally & socially conscious plant-based products to nourish and support the body. Our work promotes the traditional practice of herbal medicine and sustainable agricultural processes. We work closely with a network of small scale ethical farmers for all of our ingredients in the UK and EU.

GOOD Botanics promote earth care, people care & fair share. We believe human health and planetary health are intertwined. We invest our profits into innovative projects that support environmental and social justice.

Currently our profits go towards the Mobile Apothecary project. The Mobile Apothecary produces high quality herbal medicine for free distribution to individuals experiencing homelessness on the streets of London.
