Giving Back

I truly believe that each individual can make a positive difference in the world.  Small choices like the products you purchase, the services you use and the food that you eat can all make a difference to the environment, economy, and local and world community.

That being said, I also believe it is important to support other people and organizations that are doing good things in our world, as well as people that may just need a little extra help.  Urban Earth Teas has two different programs that allows us to donate a percentage of our sales to local and global charities and organizations as well as community members in need.

Teas for Bees: Features teas blended using ingredients that are well known for providing food for pollinators. All profits from these teas are donated to Pollinator Partnership Canada.

Pollinator Partnership Canada: Bees are not only cute, fluffy and fascinating creatures, they are absolutely critical to the health of our ecosystems and our food supply.  Pollinator Partnership Canada (P2C) is a registered not-for-profit organization in Canada dedicated exclusively to the protection and promotion of pollinators and their ecosystems.  For more information on their mission and programs, please visit
