Sustainability at Pukka
22nd April 2016
Did you know that the amount of organic herbs we bought last year is the same weight as 188 elephants? And that we sold 312 million cups of delicious, organic, staple free, compostable herbal tea?
So to say we rely on our beautiful Planet Earth at Pukka is, of course, an understatement. Our organically grown herbs come from her soil, are watered by her rains and often require a steady climate to reach the medicinal grade quality that go into our teas and wellbeing supplements. But agricultural soil is eroding and reliable weather rapidly becoming a thing of the past. We can’t grow healing herbs on a sick planet.
We all need to give back to the planet. Urgently.
Today, we publish our sustainability report outlining our efforts at Pukka to have a net positive impact on People, Plants and Planet. It is packed full of data and Pukka stories from our last financial year. We have many things to celebrate, including becoming carbon neutral in our operations and sending zero waste to landfill.
We also discuss where we need to improve and some of our big challenges. These are mostly issues too big for us to tackle alone. For example working with our committed suppliers to help farmers deal with climate change impacts. And reaching our goal to be 100% certified fair trade for our teas by the end of this year.
We all know that the monumental task of restoring a healthy balance to the planet requires collective action. Which is why we were so proud to join 1% for the Planet this year, a pioneering initiative that connects businesses, non-profits and individuals working together for a healthy planet.
To find out more about all this and more, have a look through our sustainability report while you sit down and enjoy your next Pukka cuppa, and tell us what you think.
