How often do you think about a good cup of tea? If you are like us its pretty often. How often though do you think about the tea bag you toss in the garbage after that cup of tea has been finished? Numi Organic Teas thinks about what impact that little tea bag has on the environment and that makes this a brand we are proud of for producing quality, good tasting teas and doing it in a way that shows Numi's commitment to the betterment of the world.
Numi Organic Teas and the ingredients used to make them come directly from fair labor gardens that pay farmers and workers fair wages. More that half of Numi’s delicious teas are sourced from Fair Trade Certified™ gardens. These Fair Trade gardens empower tea growers to invest Fair Trade premiums back into their communities. Numi introduced its new Fair Labor Practices (FLP) program in 2013, a proprietary verification program that focuses on labor and workplace conditions throughout Numi’s entire foreign supply chain with the goal of continuous improvement. Numi uses biodegradable, filterpaper tea bags made from natural materials rather than GMO corn, plastic or silk tea sachets. Their tea boxes are made of 85% post-consumer waste, printed with soy-based inks and without unneeded shrink-wrap.
So drink up, sip slowly or pour over ice and enjoy knowing your purchase helps you relax and feel good while improving the lives of others and keeping waste and non-biodegradables out of landfills.
