Yogi Tea — Outstanding Environmental Protection Global 2018

NOTHING quite soothes the soul — or even the planet — like a warm cup of Yogi Tea. These recipes are based on the Indian philosophy of Ayurveda and designed to promote well-being through the harmonious balance of mind, body, and spirit. The Yogi Tea brand has a strict “be good, do good” philosophy: it’s been using organic methods of farming, treatment, and storage since the 1980s. The company is dedicated to minimising its carbon footprint, and powers its German and Italian facilities via renewable sources. Meanwhile, its new $21m US production facility is Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified. The company’s sustainability initiatives worldwide, particularly those focusing on environmental conservation and children’s education, caught the attention of the BV judging panel, leading the panel to name Yogi Tea as the 2018 winner of the Outstanding Environmental Protection award.
