 Sad Tea Story

Tea plantation workers and small tea farm holders are among the poorest people in the world. They find themselves trapped in a cycle of poverty, back-breaking labor and little education with no way out.  

Some tea companies are turning to Fair Trade certification programs (such as Equal ExchangeFair Trade USA, Rainforest Alliance, etc.) to try to create a better life for tea growers.  Click here to find tea from companies who are working directly with tea farmers to break the cycle of poverty!  Or click the links below to learn more.
