ruved is dedicated to making the world a better place. Whether it is through the care given to the growing of our herbs, the treatment of the people working for us in our fields and factories, or by supporting the communities surrounding our growing efforts in India and across the globe, ruved is committed to having a positive impact wherever we do business.
One of the ways that pledge has come to life is through the use of renewable energy. Our state-of-the-art hydroelectric project employs a micro-unit generator that does not disturb the natural flow of the river; thereby protecting fish runs and wildlife while aiding local farmers and villages, enhancing their quality of life, and encouraging them to have less impact on the environment as well. We have also instituted a program to reduce the impact of widespread deforestation that plagues India and encourage long term planning to ensure the sustainability of all resources indigenous to the region. We have introduced a program that educates the villagers about how to wild-craft valuable plants and herbs without negatively effecting the environment, ensuring the sustainability of these treasured indigenous plants remains for generations to come.
ruved continues its commitment to its growers, community, and customers by providing better-than-market-wage jobs, education about sustainable harvesting, community clinics free of charge for those who are unable to pay, clean water facilities in areas that previously had none, and many other services, including educational opportunities for the tribal communities of the Himachal Pradesh region. We are working every day to discover new ways that we can add to our sustainable practices.
