In the consumption-heavy society that we live in, we believe it is an essential duty to take positive action towards preserving the environment.

We consider ourselves not only lovers of nature and outdoor activities, but stewards of the environment. Here's 3 ways in which we pursue environmental sustainability to prolong the enjoyment of this beautiful planet.

It's all about the loose leaf 🌱

Loose leaf tea equals less rubbish. By consuming loose leaf tea both of us are reducing our environmental impact by avoiding individually wrapped tea sachets and/or bags which often contain plastic. Just scoop, brew and enjoy.
Sustainable packaging 📨

Packaging is where consumable goods can negatively impact the earth. All the single use plastics can really do damage to the world, so we have ensured our plastic packaging is 100% recycled and 100% recyclable. On top of this, our stickers are bio-degradable and our postage packaging is with compostable mailer bags. We're not perfect, but we're consciously working in the most sustainable ways we can as we evolve and grow TEA MATE.

We're 1% for the planet 🌏

We’re a "1% For The Planet" member, which is a global movement inspiring businesses and individuals to support environmental solutions through annual memberships and everyday actions. 

TEA MATE is committed to donate the equivalent of 1% of gross sales through a combination of monetary, in-kind and approved promotional support directly to environmental nonprofits, keeping us accountable and proactive. So in that way, you are also contributing to 1% for the Planet when you drink TEA MATE.
