The Right Thing To Do...

Why have a SustainabiliTea program? Why be "green"? Why put so much energy into protecting our planet? Because it is the right thing to do...

One of the most important things that the Bigelow family as well as everyone at Bigelow Tea tries to do is make a difference. How do we do that? We do it many ways, and it was a philosophy started by my grandmother, Ruth Campbell Bigelow and very much continued by my parents, David and Eunice Bigelow. Today it is ingrained in the culture of our company as articulated in our Mission Statement. It is simple "do the right thing and good things will follow."

This pertains to all aspects of our business. It starts with producing only the finest tasting teas hand picked from mountain grown gardens. Every new tea created must be personally approved by a member of the Bigelow family. We at Bigelow tea are serious about protecting the environment, giving back to our community and taking care of our employees and their families… for future generations.
