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...
Bigelow Tea is a family company that has tried to do the right
thing for both the planet, the community and our employees since my
grandmother founded the company back in 1945. Why? Simply stated
because all of us can and all of us should... that is why we want
to share our mission with you. Maybe things we are doing will help
create more positive energy by others to do good things on this
earth. Maybe it will help our employees continue their good effort.
Maybe it will spur our customers to share with us some of the good
things they are doing. And maybe it will convert someone
somewhere to try and do more...
As I have said to those around me for a very long time "do the
right thing, and good things will follow". We can make a
difference, each of us. It doesn't have to always be "big things"
either. If we each take even small steps to make this planet
better, together, we can move mountains. So you will see some of
our programs are quite expansive (like our 1.5 million dollar solar
panel project) and some of our steps are quite small-like bringing
in our own tea mugs so that we do not continue to add to our land
fill with disposable cups. But large or small, they are
So let us share with you all of our efforts here at Bigelow Tea
to help make this world a better place. Hope you will agree,
together, we can make a difference...
