We strive to minimize our environmental footprint.
For Nari, we work to practice the “Heaven, Earth, Human in Harmony (天地人和)” philosophy and to support a sustainable living approach to being with this earth. We work directly with our tea farmers and curate the seasonally available single farm teas without middlemen in between. We believe that all the small things we do daily add up to make a big difference to our mother earth. This includes prioritizing train and sea over air shipments, as well as sourcing packaging from local suppliers.
We keep our supply chain transparent. All the farmers are our personal friends, so we encourage customers to read our farmers' stories on our website and to purchase our tea with appreciation and care for them, just as if you would with new friends.
We are plastic free. Using packaging that is either biodegradable, compostable, recyclable or reusable.
We here at Nari tea, we hate, excuse me... HATE single use plastics. In our packaging process we have learned how incredibly hard it is to find good compostable packaging, as the market is still developed for single use plastics and the cost savings it provides. With Nari tea, we have our chance to run a business that we would like to see as consumers. After much time we found compostable courier pouches which meet our standards, made from high quality Corn Starch PLA which is 100% compostable with a compostable ALOX inner coating. These are industrial compostable, so when you're done with our tea, toss this in your local compost bin instead of the trash, so that it can live it's next life - giving life to others.
WE ARE OPEN FOR RECOMMENDATIONS FOR ANY RELATED SUSTAINABLE THINKING AND ACTS. ANY TIPS ON HOW TO BE MORE ECOLOGICAL ARE WARMLY WELCOMED.
