Greenopia Environment Achievement:
Tazo does a great job using a large number of organic ingredients for its teas which avoid the production and pollution burdens of pesticides and fertilizers. Tazo also offsets its energy use for its production and shipping of its products. Tazo cartons are made with 50% post-consumer recycled content.
It doesn’t appear that Tazo has made any strides in its transportation burdens and could also stand to improve some of its packaging. Glass bottles tend to have the highest overall life cycle impact of any beverage container and many Tazo products are shipped in these bottles.
Tazo uses either organic or natural ingredients so you don’t have to worry about any synthetic chemicals in your tea. The only ingredient that has some health concerns surrounding it is caffeine which is safe for most people in moderation.
Tazo makes eco-friendly tea products and if it could add some green attributes to its distribution could be one of the greenest beverage companies.
