Planet

Through thoughtful choices, we are committed to reducing our impact on the planet. By using organic teas in our tea bags, eco-responsible packaging and partnering with green partners to offset carbon emissions, we try and do our best through our supply chain to minimize waste.  We are honoured to be recognized through various awards for our efforts. Since most elements of our packaging can be recycled or composted, we ask that you thoughtfully recycle your boxes and compost your tea bags to complete the circle.

WHY ORGANIC?

As with all intensively farmed crops, conventional tea is routinely treated with a broad range of agricultural chemicals that are potentially harmful to farmers, farm workers and the environment. As opposed to most produce that is washed prior to consumption, most teas are air-dried without first being washed. The first time tea comes into contact with water is in our own cups, right before we drink it. This means that any harmful chemicals used at the gardens are released in our cups along with the tea flavour.

At Numi, we are committed to supporting organic tea cultivation to protect the health of farmers, the planet and you. Beyond delivering the highest quality of product, organic teas are cultivated without the use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides.

Choosing organic not only preserves our earth’s resources and protects the health of the farmers, but ensures that what is going into our bodies is 100% natural, made the way nature intended.

ECO-RESPONSIBLE PACKAGING

Numi Organic Tea’s award-winning sustainable packaging uses the most innovative materials available to minimize impact on the environment. We use recyclable, cardboard outer packaging made of 85% post-consumer waste and printed with soy-based inks. We do not use plastic shrink wrap, and we use natural, biodegradable filter-paper tea bags rather than nylon or GMO-origin tea sachets. Most elements of our packaging can be recycled or composted!

The bottom panel of each box of Numi Organic Teas features an Eco-Responsibility Audit that reflects the waste reduced due to our eco-responsible efforts. This audit is performed using the Environmental Paper Network’s Paper Calculator.
