(1) Single Origin Spices
We source a majority of our single-origin spices from small-scale family-owned farmers in Kerala, India, that practice regenerative farming. Regenerative farming is a big part of the community. Women are at the forefront of these operations and as a result further fuel the development of their community.
These farms have been passed down from generation to generation and continue to implement sustainable farming practices.
The brewing of our chai concentrate leaves behind a by-product of the fresh spices and teas used in production which we refer to as call “Chai Mulch”. We have partnered with Jennifer Tice of Evolve Botanica in Atlanta, Georgia, to compost the Chai Mulch. Jennifer now picks up most of the chai mulch to use in her own production. The remaining mulch is used in family garden.
(3) Packaging & Shipping
Our glass concentrate bottles and glass loose-leaf jars are 100% reusable and we encourage that our customers use them to store liquids, spices and even for floral arrangements.
All orders are packaged with biodegradable packing peanuts that are dissolvable in water and nearly eliminate interior packaging waste. So make sure to wash those packing peanuts away!
At the Chai Box we are continually looking for ways to make our operations more sustainable. We hope that you enjoy the love and dedication that goes into blending and brewing each batch of chai.
