Nature needs mushrooms. We like to keep them there.
At a time so critical to the future of our planet, mushrooms emerge as environmental guardians. The mycelial networks and mushrooms that spawn and spread from them clean our soils, cycle nutrients to plants, trees and through the food chain. They have the ability to heal habitats and clean up toxic waste. We aim to support our environment, soils and forests -- instead of borrowing from it.
Sustainability is one of our pillars at Rainbo and here is how we’ve built it into every decision and the fabric of our business.
25% of our profit from merchandise is donated to our non-profit partners who are working to rebuild healthy soils, forests and ecosystems around the world. Merchandise and more details coming soon.
Our mushrooms are cultivated sustainably in Canada with the exception of chaga which would take 20 years to cultivate to fruiting body! We do source local chaga sustainably from nature.
We upcycle: we use organic coffee grains that would otherwise be thrown away to culture and grow our mycelium into healthy mushrooms (along with other substrates like soil, saw dust, oats).
We use glass bottles and our tincture lid is made from bamboo instead of plastic – we invite you to reuse our bottles!
We offer bulk mushroom tincture to cafes and restaurants.
Our labels are 100% paper based and even the laminate doesn’t contain plastics.
We are always looking to support mycoremediation projects. Please get in touch if you are using mushrooms to clean the soil.
