green credentials

We try to do the decent thing; tea is a natural product and that means it shouldn’t be adulterated by anything nasty (including attitudes).

Our green credentials in a nutshell…

Rainforest Alliance

rainforestThe Rainforest Alliance works to conserve biodiversity and ensure sustainable livelihoods by transforming land-use practices, business practices and consumer behaviour.

video-stillWe are working with the tea estates from which we source, to put the little green frog on every pack we sell. At the moment our english breakfast (everyday brew) blend has Rainforest Alliance certification.

Here is a little more about the work and objectives of the Rainforest Alliance and a nice little video which sums up the work they do.

Green packaging

japanesebioplasticsOur tea temples are made from biodegradable corn starch. The material was developed in Japan and has the green “pla” mark which is an endorsement by the Japanese bioplastics association.

 

fsc(1)Our packaging is fully recyclable, and the cardboard used to make the packaging is FSC certified. FSC (Forestry Stewardship Council) is a organisation which promotes environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable management of the worlds forests.
