Carbon neutral certified

We have worked closely with The Sri Lanka Climate Fund and we are pleased to announce that after calculating our carbon footprint they have verified our business as carbon neutral against the globally accepted ISO standard 14025:2006 and ISO 14064-1: 2008 for product and the organisation respectively.

Planet organic

We’re passionate about organic farming and have only ever traded 100% organic teas and herbal infusions. Why are we so passionate about it? Because organic farming is the only way to ensure that our planet is properly looked after through agriculture for the present and the future. Our ingredients are chemical-free (fertilisers, pesticides, insecticides, herbicides) which keeps the ecosystems around the teas, herbs and spices as natural and happy as possible.

Strictly no GMO

Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) have had their DNA modified by humans through a process of genetic engineering. The dangers and risks of mass GMO farming to the planet is well documented and many countries have banned or restricted their use as a result. With no standardised regulations on the labelling of GMOs in packaging and ingredients means that it’s often difficult or impossible to know where they hide. We guarantee that none of our ingredients or packaging contain any GMOs.

Our packaging materials from 2021

Natureflex

2021 will see us switching to fully compostable inner packaging in our retail products by using Natureflex, a very clever plant-based alternative to plastic.

FSC cardboard

We already use FSC (Forest Stewardship Council Certification) cardboard for most of our packaging and we’re working towards this being 100%.

Pyramid bags, tags and string

As of March 2021 our pyramid bags, string and tag will be made from sugar cane, cotton and paper making them all biodegradable and suitable for your food waste bin at home. Please bear with us as we run down our current materials and inventory – we expect you’ll start to see this come through at the end of summer.
