Like a network of mycelium, we believe that all of our practices at Rainbo should work in tandem with one another to help keep our planet clean, healthy and happy. Our priorities are to spread mushroom healing and education in the most sustainable way possible. for us, it's about progress, not perfection.

Since day one, we’ve considered and implemented sustainable practices across each facet of our business: from offering extracts in large 100ml glass bottles to bulk offerings, recyclable materials, paper based labels without plastic laminates, donating a portion of all sales to environmental and social justice causes, offsetting our carbon footprint and becoming Climate Neutral Certified and continually committing and challenging ourselves to set better and higher goals and reduction targets. Our priorities are to spread mushroom healing and education to as many people as possible, in the most sustainable way possible.

How are mushrooms sustainable?

Rainbo mushrooms are cultivated locally in Canada. Why? Because nature needs mushrooms, and we like to keep them there. When we started Rainbo Mushrooms, we knew that we couldn’t and wouldn’t scale a company that sourced wild mushrooms for our products; It was crucial that we cultivated our mushrooms locally because we didn’t want to use extractive processes that left nothing for others, animals and the environment.

When we keep mushrooms where they belong, they are able to propagate their mycelial network and spread their spores near and far. When we have more mushrooms, we have a stronger web for nature to use for recycling, cleaning soil, sharing nutrients and sustaining ecosystems. On top of that, mushroom farming generates much less carbon dioxide than other types of vegetables and requires less land use than other agricultural practices.

How to recycle your Rainbo products

All of our tinctures follow the same recycling method:
Step one: Make sure your tincture is empty!
Step two: Rinse it out with warm soap and water
Step three: Place it in your home recycling bin or reuse it to your liking.

For Forest Juice:
Step one: make sure your Forest Juice is empty!
Step two: Rinse it out as best you can (sometimes glass bottles with remaining contents won’t get recycled).
Step three: Place it in your home recycling bin or reuse it as a kitchen or household item!

Ps. If you know of any herbalists in your area, ask them if they need empty glass tincture bottles and boston round bottles, as they often love to accept these items.
