The meaning behind it all!

Over the past 5 years I’ve been a construction worker and have seen how we affect our world. I’ve paved asphalt for 3 years and watched all the diesel and other harmful chemicals go into our water pipes. I worked on the trolley construction and have seen how so many things go to waste or just get left behind. Most of all, I’ve stood on top of mountains of garbage after dumping new furniture into landfills from jobs I’ve done demolition on. These mountains just get bigger and eventually they will reach their capacity.

​When the wind would blow while I was on top of these mountains full of waste, one day a plastic pouch smacked me in the face!  As I would step outside my truck getting ready to dump more garbage my feet would get buried in plastic waste. I watched the birds eat plastic bottle caps and watched how it would get stuck in their throats. I was disturbed by how we as humans forget we are only one piece to the puzzle of this ecosystem but yet we affect all in a negative way.

I’ve always had a passion for tea and natural things that come from the earth. I thought, what if I could create a giving product that wouldn’t just be healthy for people but also healthy for the earth? I knew that the world didn’t need another plastic pouch! There is always room for innovation!

​With my passion for tea and my desire to help solve the damage I’ve done from construction, I collaborated tea with a biodegradable package and much more! I hope this will help influence other companies to make more conscious decisions on how they package their product. The tea I’ve selected is directly sourced from the farmers, fair trade, or helps support their economy. Eventually I will partner with non-profit organizations by donating a percentage of my profit to help with deforestation. Giving back is the best way to help and this is my way to carve a path and give back! Thank you!
