Whole Planet Foundation Supporter
As most of you know, we are very proud of the integrity that anchors our products. For us, this goes beyond the fact that Steaz tastes great and is made with the best quality organic ingredients, our products are also Fair Trade certified. This means our teas are procured from tea estates that pay their farmers FAIR wages and provide these workers with FAIR working conditions.
We have also developed a strong relationship with Whole Foods Market, who not only supports us in their stores but also in helping guide us in the world of social responsibility.
In October of last year we announced that we would donate a percentage of every Steaz beverage purchased in one of the 300+ Whole Foods Market locations to the Whole Planet Foundation. We plan to donate $15,000 over the next year! This will impact 665 lives around the world.
The Whole Planet Foundation provides grants to microfinance institutions in poor communities where the grocer sources products. Their goal is to fund poverty alleviation in 60 countries by the end of 2012!
Without you, our loyal Steazers, this partnership would not exist. We value "providing a better way" well into the future and sincerely thank you for supporting us and all that we do globally. So crack open a Steaz, enjoy the best that Mother Nature has to offer - and know that you are doing your part to make this a healthier, better world.
