A responsible shipment of your tea
At tastea, we're committed to making the shipping of our tea blends as sustainable as possible. Every day, we send out numerous packages, ensuring you receive the most delicious teas of the highest quality. To support our eco-friendly mission, we've chosen to ship all our products in FSC-certified shipping boxes.
Forest Stewardship Council: Guardians of Nature
The FSC is dedicated to preserving and restoring forests worldwide. In the Netherlands, their vision is to ensure that all wood and paper on the market is 100% sustainable by 2025. The FSC-certified forests are strictly protected from conversion into plantations or mining areas. Currently managing approximately 200 million hectares of forest area, the FSC's efforts span fifty times the surface area of the Netherlands.
The Authentic FSC Quality Mark
The FSC quality mark is a symbol of genuine sustainability. It cannot be placed on any packaging or building material unless it can be verified that the material originates from FSC forests. To ensure authenticity, organizations that are FSC-certified undergo annual checks by independent certified bodies, confirming that the products sold with the FSC label are genuinely sourced.
Embracing FSC-Certified Material: A Green Choice
Choosing FSC-certified shipping boxes contributes to the health and preservation of forests, ensuring an infinite and renewable raw material supply. Unlike concrete, plastic, or metals, well-maintained forests foster a healthy living environment on Earth. They purify water, absorb significant amounts of CO2, and serve as a vital source of biodiversity. By opting for FSC-certified shipping boxes, we actively contribute to these positive environmental impacts.
Custom-Made and Tastea-Friendly
We've taken extra steps to optimize our shipping practices. Our boxes are specially crafted in various sizes, allowing us to match the perfect size to each order. This means no wasted space, and we can ship more orders in one go. Additionally, our shipping boxes sport an awesome tastea design on the inside, a beautiful surprise when you receive your package.
A Green Partnership: DHL and tastea
Sustainability doesn't stop with our FSC-certified boxes; it extends all the way to your doorstep. We've partnered with DHL, a company that shares our dedication to reducing CO2 emissions. They're actively working towards sustainable practices, from building eco-friendly structures to incorporating HVO-powered equipment and expanding their electric vehicle fleet. DHL's ultimate goal is to achieve zero global emissions by 2050.
