SUBJECT OF LETTER (Example: The exploitation of Echinacea)
 
 

This letter is in response to the Echinacea products distributed by your company. As a seller of your products, I am concerned about the origin of your Echinacea supplies. Please let me know how your resources are obtained and the location that your Echinacea is from.

Many of the Echinacea products on the market today come directly from the prairie ecosystem of the United States plains. As a result of this, Echinacea is virtually disappearing from the prairies and thus altering this already threatened ecosystem. With the increased demand for Echinacea, the situation is becoming urgent! Resources have been exhausted from Nebraska and Kansas, and now companies are beginning to dig in South Dakota and North Dakota. Please help us to protect wild Echinacea plants from disappearing from the prairie forever.

Our business has decided to support companies that obtain Echinacea through commercially grown, organic suppliers. Please let me know how Echinacea is obtained for your products, so that I can pass this information on to customers. If your company is currently purchasing commercially grown, organic Echinacea then you have our full support and we appreciate your effort.
 
 

Sincerely,
