We at Bhakti Chai feel honored to know that the premium we pay on our ingredients — whether it’s Fair Trade Certified tea, organic ginger or Non-GMO Verified soy — is establishing a standard of self-sufficiency on a global level. We are impacting today’s land owners and entrepreneurs which will lead to a new generation of educated and passionate community leaders.
In addition, from zero waste manufacturing to sustainable packaging, Bhakti Chai incorporates conscious practices into every aspect of its business.
Some of the most significant ways we prove our commitment to sustainability include….
Non-GMO Project Verified
Bhakti Chai, in our commitment to sourcing sustainable, all-natural products from regional farmers, has received third-party endorsement from the Non-GMO Project that our products are Non-GMO Project Verified.
Fair Trade Certified
The Fair Trade Certified label ensures that Bhakti Chai’s black tea is produced according to standards that enable sustainable livelihoods for small-scale farmers and farm workers in the developing world.
Certified B Corp
Bhakti is one of a growing number of businesses with Certified B Corporation status. Benefit Corporations (B Corps) are businesses with strong triple bottom line (people, planet, profit) values that voluntarily undergo a yearly audit to assess measurable impact in identified areas, such as reducing ecological footprint and investing in the community.
Zero Waste is one of the quickest, easiest and most effective first steps for a community to immediately reduce its GHG emissions. As a Green Star Business Member, Bhakti drives to reduce the packaging from suppliers and/or make sure any necessary packaging is recyclable or reusable. We also hope to find a secondary beneficial use for the pulp extractions that are created during the brewing process. Perhaps most importantly, Bhakti and would like to make sure that all employees are educated and trained on what goes where to minimalize landfill waste and maximize responsible waste sorting habits.
