At Flint & Co. we take our ethical responsibility very seriously. Each year we donate a % of our profits to good causes.
The photo above is taken at the beautiful Ashburnham Tea Estate in Elkaduwa, Sri Lanka. The money we donate this year will help with housing, education and working conditions for the Elkaduwa community. We want to make sure that we give money not just to benefit the lives of those who work directly on the tea estate, but also to benefit the lives of the whole community of which Asburnham is a part.
Unlike other commodities, historically, tea has tended to be traded fairly. But we know that, unfortunately, this is not always the case. At Flint & Co. we are committed to only ever supplying tea which has been ethically sourced. So all our tea comes from members of the Ethical Tea Partnership. The ETP works to improve the lives of tea workers and their environment. They help producers improve their social and environmental practices. This means workers are treated fairly, working conditions are safe, and environmental impact is kept to a minimum.
In addition we ensure that all our packaging is 100% recyclable, and each of our Tea Pyramids are fully biodegradable.
