Did you know that it takes approximately 32.17 seconds to prepare the perfect cup of matcha tea? Well, that number is admittedly fictitious as unicorns. Sadly, the following fact is not a joke. Each year, Zambia loses an estimated 250,000 to 300,000 ha of forest due to deforestation in the country. That equals the area of Funen at a rough estimate.
MAKING THE CHANGE TOGETHER!
At Matchateria we are always looking for ways we can give back to the world. We want to make a positive impact on the environment around us. In our products we use only organic ingredients, try to reduce packaging and use recycled materials. While we can’t do completely zero-waste packaging, we still care about the environment and we want to find a way to make a positive impact on our world by contributing to reforestation projects.
FOR EACH MATCHA WE SELL, MATCHATERIA IS PLANTING A TREE IN ZAMBIA, AFRICA.
We joined a project WeForest to fight global warming by restoring forests in different areas in the world.
Our aim is not just to be a “carbon neutral” company but to become “net positive”, which is a new way we can give back to society more than it takes from it. For this reason, we decided to plant a tree for each matcha we sell. One tea means one tree – as simple as it is.
Every tea you enjoy from Matchateria helps to bring us closer to our goal, to make the Earth a cooler place. We want to thank you, and everyone who ever bought our teas, for making this possible.
