Carbon offsetting

We carbon offset all our shipping through WWF’s Gold Standard. We choose to donate to their forestry projects, particularly seeking out those located in the tea producing areas of the world. It is through these initiatives, which promote sustainable land use and the conservation of biodiversity, that we wish to make a positive impact on the tea farming community.
We use DHL’s carbon calculator to aggregate all emissions from our shipping activities on a twice yearly basis. The equivalent amount of credits are then directly acquired from Gold Standard.
Previous donations have gone to these projects:
Reforestation in Mountainous Communities of Yunnan Province, China
Afforestation on Degraded Lands in Mountainous Areas of Guangdong Province, China
Himalayan Oak Restoration Project
Bagepalli, India CDM Reforestation Programme
