After a very rigorous screening process, we are pleased to announce that Arbor Teas is now a member of Green America's Green Business Network! The Green Business Network is the green business program of Green America, the nation's leading non-profit educator on socially and environmentally responsible consumption and investing. Green America’s mission is to harness economic power—the strength of consumers, businesses and the marketplace—to create a socially just and environmentally sustainable society. Companies are only eligible for membership in the Green Business Network™ if they are found to be:
--> using business as a tool for social change;
--> "values-driven," not simply profit-driven;
--> socially and environmentally responsible in the way they source, manufacture, and market their products, and run their offices and factories; and
--> committed to and employing extraordinary and innovative practices that benefit workers, communities, customers, and the environment.
We are deeply honored to be included in this select directory of the nation's most progressive businesses, and view it as further validation of the intense focus Arbor Teas maintains on matters of sustainability and social justice. Arbor Teas is proud to be working with Green America to advance their mission.
