Social Responsibility

Social Responsibility
Our commitment to social responsibility is multi-faceted. We source from Fair Trade producers whenever possible. We work with the Exceptional Children’s Foundation to pick and pack our website orders. We integrate every opportunity to eliminate our carbon footprint at our head offices. We source recyclable and reusable packaging materials that benefit you and the earth.

Fair Trade
As an established social movement empowering workers in developing countries, Fair Trade advocates the payment of a fair price and the adherence to a set of strong social and environmental standards in the production of a wide variety of goods.

Fair Trade deliberately advocates on behalf of marginalized producers and workers, helping them move from a position of vulnerability to one of security and economic self-sufficiency; ultimately encouraging the workers to become stakeholders in their organizations. Fair Trade actively plays a wide role in the global arena to achieve greater equity in international trade.

Exceptional Children’s Foundation
The Exceptional Children’s Foundation provides high quality educational and vocational services for children and adults challenged with developmental disabilities, allowing them to reach their greatest potential.

They provide a lifetime of services for clients, granting them the support needed to live independently, while providing progressive educational, therapeutic, employment, residential and community programs to students, consumers and clients.

We employ their skilled workers, guided professionally by mentors to help them learn the flow of daily work life. These workers become comfortable taking direction and fulfilling business goals, learning to adapt a traditional work environment to their unique mental and physical challenges. ECF is committed to their business partners’ success while empowering the children and adults they are mentoring.

Recyclable and Reusable Packaging
Our tea tins are made from tin-plated steel, the most recyclable packaging material in the world. Steel is among the most sustainable forms of packaging as it does not lose any original properties- regardless of how many times it is recycled.
Our corrugated packaging is 100% recyclable and is made from 65%+ recycled content.

Corporate Responsibility
We believe every bit counts and we whatever possible individually and as a corporation to ensure our carbon footprint is reduced.

Our manufacturing facilities are placed strategically to promote fuel-efficient transportation and to employ local workers.

Our corporate offices are in downtown Los Angeles, and we reimburse our team’s commute by public transportation to reduce their own carbon foot print.

We have committed ourselves to becoming a paper-free work environment by 2019 and encourage all employees to exercise every option before choosing to print.
