As more, and more people are thinking of making the switch to organic products the question of ‘Why?” feels more important than ever. You may know why you should shop organic for meat or produce - but do you know why you should be buying organic tea?
Why Organic is Important
Organic farming is widely considered to be a far more sustainable alternative when it comes to food and beverage production. Organic foods promote healthier and more sustainable use of natural resources as it reduces pollution, soil erosion and soil fertility and health; it also uses less energy and conserves water.
At Planet Organic our farming helps build a healthy global community by employing safe agricultural practices that work in harmony with our environment. Our products are grown in plantations where topsoil is nurtured naturally by composting not chemicals. This reduces soil erosion and keeps land fertile. Our organic farming practices stop chemical contamination to our waterways and promotes a healthy, diverse ecosystem for animal and plant life.
The Benefits of Choosing Organic Tea
After water, tea is the world's most-consumed drink. Tea is a crop like any other, subjected to common farming practices. To maintain the ever-increasing demand, regular tea farming and production has been focused on keeping up with supply while keeping prices down. As we’re sure you can imagine the impact of keeping up with these high demands are not great on the farmers or the environment. Organic tea farming practices do not utilise synthetic pesticides and fertilizers to maintain a high yield and therefore does not pose a threat to the environment, unlike regular tea farming.
