Waris has traveled the world of tea, in search of the best, letting the healing power of plants guide us on this exploration. As with everything we do, we hold fast to the idea of considered consumption and infuse this sense of social resposibility and care into our daily practices. Our teas and herbs, hand picked from exceptional estates, are organic - which means they’re good for you and good for the planet.

Problem

Worldwide consumption and production — a driving force of the global economy — rest on the use of the natural environment and resources in a way that continues to have destructive impacts on the planet.

Economic and social progress over the last century has been accompanied by environmental degradation that is endangering the very systems on which our future development — indeed, our very survival — depends.

Each year, an estimated one-third of all food produced – equivalent to 1.3 billion tonnes worth around $1 trillion – ends up rotting in the bins of consumers and retailers, or spoiling due to poor transportation and harvesting practices.

Sustainable consumption and production is about doing more and better with less. It is also about decoupling economic growth from environmental degradation, increasing resource efficiency and promoting sustainable lifestyles.

Sustainable consumption and production can also contribute substantially to poverty alleviation and the transition towards low-carbon and green economies.

Solution

HOUSE of WARIS Botanicals was catalyzed by the radical little idea of examining what thoughtful living means in our world today. We care about how we treat our bodies and the planet and want to affect positive change within our community and beyond.

For the past few years, I have been visiting farms and tea estates, learning about sustainable sourcing, developing exciting botanical blends, and working with herbalists to make you something special.

Besides the sourcing and blending, I wanted to put careful thought and consideration into our packaging. Instead of using the same tin or box that every other tea and herbals company uses we started from scratch and designed our own tin. It took a long time to create something so simple.

First I was going to put it in a box.  But creating more garbage in the world really bothered me. So I wanted to create something that you wouldn’t want to throw away. Something you would put jelly beans in, rubber bands (do people still use rubber bands?), pencils, widgets, and knick-knacks. But we cut all of that out. It’s just the beautiful tin you see here. If you reuse your tin, you’ve helped us eliminate waste. Our teabags are made of a biodegradable, natural, non-toxic material called Soilon and the seams are sealed with ultrasonic technology, so no glue is used. We want to make sure our tea bags are as safe, and compostable, as the ingredients inside.

Problem

22 million kgs of plastic enters our ocean every day. That’s one truckload every minute. It’s increasing.

Yet up to 80% of the world’s ocean plastic comes from a lack of waste management infrastructure in coastal communities around the world.

It’s here we want to focus. Many businesses donate a vague percentage of profit to causes or tack on corporate responsibility as an added layer.

Solution

We believe in a defined impact per product, for the sale of every bottle, we contribute directly to Plastic Bank who ensure 11.4kg of plastic, equivalent of over 1000 plastic bottles will always be collected.

The Collectors:

Over 4300 plastic collectors live and work in places where plastic pollution is worst, they do the critical work to collect, sort and recycle much of the world’s waste. Some collectors work full time and for others, it’s a side hustle to earn extra income for the family.

The majority of plastic collectors do not, however have the protection from governments or municipal authorities many of us do. It’s our duty to ensure they receive a fair income for their work which is why we work with Plastic Bank & IBM blockchain technology to formalise an often informal & unfair waste sector.

As a company that prioritises action we believe environmental justice is social justice. Whether at home or further afield, environmental action that fails to recognise the link between environmental injustices and dominant systems of racism, sexism, colonialism patriarchy and ageism is not acceptable.

OUR GOAL

By 2025 we aim to collect 80million kgs of plastic which is equivalent to 7 billion plastic bottles stopping them from ever entering our oceans.

The Problem

Deforestation is a global phenomenon caused by a variety of factors. These factors range from large-scale slash and burn practices, to unsustainable agriculture, to daily community forest destruction.Regions that are most impacted by deforestation are highly poverty-stricken and underdeveloped areas. With few options to support their families, often, members of impoverished communities are forced to destroy their local environment to survive, such as cutting down trees for construction, fuel, heat, and agricultural purposes. While this solves a short-term problem, long-term consequences arise when forests are cut down and not restored. The impact of deforestation is dramatic because it causes severe flooding, erosion, and desertification. The long-term effects of deforestation lead to even worse environmental devastation.

The Solution

There are two key elements to successful reforestation. The first is that reforestation must present a benefit to the local population. Due to the unsustainable relationship between the land and the people, communities suffering from deforestation are often the same as those living in extreme poverty. It is essential to be committed to and work alongside local villages and communities to achieve a successful and longstanding reforestation effort. Eden Reforestation Projects utilizes an “Employ to Plant” methodology to benefit the members in the local communities in which we plant. Through steady employment, impoverished villagers can begin to afford daily necessities such as food, shelter, clothing, and medicine.The second critical element rests in funding. Without donors, business partners, and grants, there is little hope for successful and impactful reforestation.
