Alleviating our CO2 footprint

Our carbon footprint is very important to us and we monitor it yearly as we strive to reduce it each year. We are committed to sustainable farming and preserving the plant for the next generation.

Our CO2 impact has been alleviated by means of solar panels and the use of batteries to store excess electricity produced by our solar panels. By using more solar electricity we reduce the amount of energy used from Eskom and generators which means we reduce the amount of fossil fuel energy used and in this way we are saving the planet and reducing our CO2 footprint


In the factory we also utilise environment-first packaging. All pillow teabags are made using a plastic free, compostable material and for our pyramid teabags the tea bag material used are bio degradable. All recyclable outer packaging is FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified. This means that for every tree used to provide paper, a new one will be planted.
