Fair Trade Teas
The Fair Trade Certified™ Label guarantees consumers that strict economic, social and environmental criteria were met in the production and trade of an agricultural product. Fair Trade farmer groups receive a minimum price covering the cost of sustainable production and a premium to invest in social and economic development projects. Tea Forté is proud to offer teas and MINTEAS that support Fair Trade movement dedicated to building equitable and sustainable trading partnerships that create opportunities to alleviate poverty. The company stands in solidarity with the tea workers and empowers them by paying a pro-active premium which provides and supports fair wages and added benefits such as better housing, healthcare, education and a sustainable environment. In order to provide these benefits, Tea Forté’s premium is up to ten times more than conventional prices paid by many tea companies. Your purchase helps protect fragile ecosystems.
Supporting the preservation and improvement of the environment our boxes are made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper and printed with soy ink. Our MINTEAS and HERBAL RETREAT EnviroTins are made from steel, the most recyclable packaging material in the world. Steel is among the highest sustainable form of packaging as it is a completely and endlessly recyclable loop of steel to steel, with no loss of its original properties regardless of how many times it is recycled. The Environmental Protection Agency's reports that steel cans have the highest recycle rate of any materials, more than two-and-a-half times higher than that of most other packaging options followed by paper, paperboard, and then aluminum cans. Steel ranks as today’s most desirable, convenient, and environmentally friendly package.
