For the past six years, Arbor Teas has "neutralized" its annual operational emissions and its product shipment emissions in partnership with Carbonfund.org. We are committed to making a positive impact on the environment and have taken many steps to reduce emissions by offering only organic teas, packaging our tea in backyard compostable packaging, and using renewable energy sources. However, our teas come from all corners of the world, so the shipping emissions are unavoidable. To mitigate these emissions, we have maintained a CarbonFree® Shipping program to offset the carbon footprint of annual product shipment emissions, and to offset all internal operational emissions, by supporting Carbonfund.org’s renewable energy, energy efficiency and reforestation projects.
Until technology allow us to eliminate carbon emissions entirely, we agree whole-heartedly with CarbonFund.org’s motto:
"Reduce what you can, offset what you can’t."
