Rainforest Alliance

What we do

Rainforest Alliance

You might’ve noticed the green frog on our packets. It’s the Rainforest Alliance stamp of approval.

What does this mean? It means that our tea is farmed by workers earning a fair wage, with access to good quality housing, medical care and education for their children.

At PG tips we’re proud to be one of the major tea brands with 100% Rainforest Alliance certified tea. So you can enjoy your cup of PG tips safe in the knowledge that we’re looking after the people who grow your tea.

Tea bag waste

Every day, we drink 165 million cups of tea! But what happens to all those tea bags after they’ve been used? Well, many of them are simply thrown in the bin, meaning they end up in landfill – which is harmful to the environment. In fact tea bags are the largest contributor to unavoidable waste in the UK, generating  370,000 tonnes  every year!

What are we doing about this?

We ran a successful pilot campaign in Essex to encourage and educate consumers to include their used tea bags in food waste recycling schemes. We’re working hard on ways to continue this good work, so watch this space!
