Because our stakeholders are the environment
We at Bigelow Tea are serious about our commitment to the environment as reflected in the many energy conservation and waste reduction steps we have implemented.
Here are some of the things we’ve proudly achieved so far.
Green-e® Certified for
Carbon Footprint Reduction
Green-e® is a certification mark used on over 700 products. It’s the only third-party certification mark representing a company’s commitment to renewable energy.
Bigelow strives to produce electricity with fewer environmental impacts to help prevent global climate change. We are proud to be certified for achieving Zero Scope 2 Emissions through solar panels and the purchase of renewable energy credits. This is the equivalent to CO2 emissions from 286 homes.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Zero Waste To Landfill
Through aggressive recycling, raw material reduction and reuse and compost methods coupled with employee education and engaged Green teams throughout the company, Bigelow Tea has reached our company-wide commitment to achieve "Zero Waste to Landfill" status. Following the Zero Waste Alliance guidelines, which states a zero waste to landfill facility must divert 90% of waste from the landfill, Bigelow Tea diverts 95.3% of its solid waste company wide, exceeding the official guideline.
To ensure that our process is transparent and structured, we diligently track our weights and have created an internal auditing process and continually work to push the bar even higher.
