NUMI and Earth Day!

numi teaWith Earth Day right around the corner, now’s a perfect time to ‘green’ your morning routine by swapping in a sustainable beverage from Numi Organic Tea for your daily cup (or cups) of Joe. Long known for innovation in the world of tea, Numi works diligently to reduce their impact on the earth by being committed to sustainable agriculture, use of non-GMO materials and eco-responsible packaging.

Numi does it right!

Through a thoughtful choice, Numi devised a way to further offset their carbon emissions by cutting down on the unnecessary need for transportation between the jasmine flower growing and tea producing areas of their Jasmine Green Tea in China. Initially, the freshly picked tea had to make a long journey to the primary jasmine scenting area, so to decrease waste and emissions, Numi initiated an ambitious project to plant jasmine flowers near the tea manufacturer, which greatly diminished the need for transportation. This minimization of waste and commitment to using real ingredients (as opposed to artificial flavorings) makes Numi’s Jasmine Green Tea perfect for eco-conscious individuals to sip in honor of Earth Day this April 22nd.

Annually, Numi’s practices save 5,202 trees, reduce water usage by 2,332,740 gallons and cut down on net green house emissions by 470,475. So if there’s no time to plant a tree or ride a bike to work this Earth Day, spend your green to “go green” by purchasing Numi’s Jasmine Green Tea.

Critics hail this film as “An Invigorating Sensual & Intellectual Feast.”

“Breathtaking…Spectacular,,,Thought-Provoking.”

His whole life would be a journey, and an exploration; a search for
meaning and order, for beauty and redemption; for contact with something
larger and more lasting: for community, connection,and home. For nearly
seventy years, he would wander the great unoccupied spaces of the American
west – photographing the landscape as the landscape itself changed all around
him and as the wild places of the continent dwindled and shrankand came under
attack as never before. More than anyother artist of the century, he would help
transform the meaning of wilderness in America, and change what people thought
and felt about their own land.” PBS Narrator
