Ethical Tea Partnership
Tetley is one of the founding members of the Ethical Tea Partnership, committed to improving the conditions of farmers growing our tea around the world. The ETP works with a vision to create a socially just, environmentally sustainable and thriving tea industry. Using independent monitors to assess its performance based on the criteria laid out in the ETP standards, this initiative tackles the complex issues faced by the global tea industry. Find more about ETP, the vision, and scope at (http://www.ethicalteapartnership.org/)
We believe in farming practices that minimize the impacts on the environment and act towards safeguarding it. Working closely with organizations like the Rainforest Alliance is an integral part of this process.
The Rainforest Alliance is a non-profit organization that aims at conserving the biodiversity and ensuring a sustainable livelihood through methods that transform business and land-use practices, and consumer behavior. Tetley’s commitment to source all its teas from Rainforest Alliance certified farms is a reflection of our dedication to the future of the tea industry.
See the impact of Tetley's initiatives for yourself, by visiting the Farmers First Hand Facebook page. Here you'll be able to interact with farms directly, and share the updates through your own social media. The farmers love to receive messages from the people who drink the tea so don’t hesitate to send them a message!
Tetley are proud to be part of ‘Tea 2030’, a coalition of some of the largest tea companies, sustainability organisations, and academics. Together the members of Tea 2030 identify the long term challenges to tea, and work together to develop solutions and ensure a sustainable global industry.
