Start Food/Regenerative Ag/Sustainable Packaging Community

    Hi Everyone,
    I am working hard to source teas and herbs from regenerative farmers, only use zero waste packaging, and in general trying to move the needle in the functional tea space. I would love to learn from everyone here-but just in case not everyone is interested in these topics, is there a way to start a new community?
    Thanks,
    Candace

    I am interested in learning better sources for this. I am a tea drinker and many of my coworkers are as well.

    Yayy, Sasha, I always love meeting another tea drinker!
    Where are you located? And what kinds of sources-farms, companies, etc?

    I think by posting your comment you are on the right track. Going Zero Waste has an article on tea and eco-friendly packaging you might enjoy. Elevate Packaging is a company that has been going for a few years now, with compost-able packaging, which I think will only grow in importance. This definitely merits further discussion and promotion on all "channels," smiles. Maybe you could team up with Balcones Resources and other waste companies to develop a blog on this, and a promotional presence online, in some fashion? These companies could use the promotion - that is part of the mix - we all need to help them grow and become more mainstream.
