Earth Day Week……..by Jim Gildea

Here at Bigelow Tea, we continue to strive to make our greening and sustainability program a way of life. Even with that philosophy, we knew we wanted to make a big splash not only out of Earth Day but the whole week. In that regard, our Bigelow Green Tea devised a series of events and promotions designed to celebrate Earth and reinforce our commitment to the Environment.

Here is how Bigelow Tea celebrated Earth Day week

  • Monday April 22, 2013 (Climate Change Day) - Earth Day photo contest .....How the climate change has affected us with raised planting beds and T shirts as prizes
