It was summer of 2007, I was just starting HerbMentor and was eager to get video footage of Mountain Rose Herbs to show my new members.
Owners Shawn and Julie were excited to do an interview; however, filming the warehouse was not an option.
Why couldn’t I film?
Shawn explained that Mountain Rose has worked extremely hard to offer the best quality herbs available.
I saw the extreme care they took from receiving their bulk herbs from around the world to packing them for their customers.
The warehouse organization, the testing labs, the double testing labs… it was meticulous. I have never been so impressed in my life.
BUT, their trade secrets could not be shared on video.
I mean, they really don’t even do tours. However, they took the time to show me around. I was seriously honored.
Fast forward many years to Mountain Rose Herbs’ new facilities in Eugene. That’s where I am standing in this photo.
When I got my second tour, I was even MORE blown away.
Their new facility has gray water ponds and a giant room JUST for recycling most of the waste they take in. Shawn showed me the half a garbage bag of trash they produce a day. This is in a warehouse of over 150 workers. Seriously.
The ethics and standards that Mountain Rose Herbs embodies is beyond anything I’ve ever witnessed.
This is why LearningHerbs is proud to recommend them for your bulk herbs and herb supplies.
It’s also why LearningHerbs co-brands many of its learning experiences with Mountain Rose Herbs.
Oh, and one more thing…
I’m still not allowed to film inside the warehouse.
I know you’ll probably never get to see inside it. However, trust me. It’s astounding (and it smells really good, too).
