PG Tips becomes fully Rainforest Alliance Certified
30th July 2010
Strong Vend’s partner PG Tips, which produces the tea supplied with Strong Vends’ hot drinks machines, has now achieved full Rainforest Allowance Certification.
Rainforest Alliance is an international environment NGO which ensures that most of its tea comes from certified farms, which have ecosystem conservation programmes, protection of the workforce and surrounding environments, and better working conditions and pay for the farmers.
PG Tips’ ethical and sustainable approach in ensuring that the tea in every single PG Tips tea bag is grown using sustainable farming methods has earned the producer the status of being the first tea business to be fully Rainforest Allowance Certified.
This is great news for us at Strong Vend as we embrace the age of ethical consumerism. It means that we can feel proud that we are supporting sustainable farming and the beautiful country of Kenya, where PG Tips grows its delicious tea.
