How we support projects
Our philosophy is to support worthwhile projects which have social and/or environmental impact through tree planting and forest conservation. Typically we find that native trees or useful trees (such as fruit trees) planted and managed by local people typically have high impacts. Additionally all trees planted and conserved capture carbon dioxide during growth.
Impact per dollar
We use all profits and our best judgment to support the specific needs of individual projects to get the best impact per dollar. We are motivated by impact rather than number of trees, this means that do not simply plant the cheapest trees available. We also do not promise to “plant a certain number of trees” as this varies from project to project according to factors such as location country and type of tree planted according to the funds available.
Ethics and Sourcing
We take great care to ensure that the ingredients for our blends are sourced only from trusted, reputable suppliers, with robust social and environmental responsibility programs. All ingredients can be traced back to source, are fairly traded and ethically sourced from growers who look after the welfare of their employees and community. We particularly look for suppliers with tree-planting and forest stewardship programs, and note that our Indian Assam tea is shade-grown under trees.
Reforest Tea is a Social Business
We started a social business specifically to address the issue of global forest loss, and associated social and environmental issues, using a financially sustainable business model. When you buy and enjoy Reforest Tea, you can be confident that you are directly contributing to our projects. Our motivations are to become 'tree millionaires'!
