At Tea leo, we are so proud to share our collaboration with other sustainable companies such as EcoEnclose and Clime Works. We find it very important to use services that are eco-friendly and that make a beneficial impact on the planet. In the future, we hope to increase our sustainability efforts
EcoEnclose is an eco-conscious packaging company providing the most innovative and highest recycled content shipping supplies to small and large businesses alike. They exist to catalyze and support businesses to become a positive force for our planet and humanity. Check out their Sustainable Packaging Framework to understand how we define eco friendly, and what types of materials they prioritize.
Climeworks is a Swiss company focused on the capture and storage of carbon dioxide emissions. The carbon dioxide they capture from the air is permanently removed from the atmosphere and stored safely deep underground where it mineralizes. They offer a CO₂ removal subscription which allows you to remove your own emissions. Since their technology is fully measurable, they’re able to tell you how much they have removed with your contribution. Tea Leo will contribute a variable amount at the end of each month and post the status of our contributions to carbon dioxide removal. To learn more about how Climeworks removes CO2, click here.
