Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and More...

Over the last few years, Bigelow Tea has made a company-wide commitment to achieve "Zero Waste to Landfill" status. We have been using as our guide the guidelines of the Zero Waste Alliance which state that a company can claim being a zero waste to landfill facility if they divert 90 per cent of their waste from the landfill and no more than 10 per cent of their waste ends up in the landfill.

Bigelow Tea diverts 95.3% of its solid waste company wide, exceeding the official guideline.

Through aggressive recycling, raw material reduction and reuse and compost methods coupled with employee education and engaged Green teams throughout the company, Bigelow Tea can now make the claim that across all 3 manufacturing facilities, we are a Zero Waste to Landfill Company.

To ensure that our process is transparent and structured, we diligently track our weights and have created an internal auditing process. While we are happy with our results to date, we plan to keep pushing the bar higher and seek to divert as close to 100 per cent of our solid waste from the landfill as possible.


Bigelow Tea was recently recognized for their commitment to sustainability and the environment by Garick LLC.
