WHITETREE Sustainable Manufacturing
Doing Our Part
We are committed to achieving sustainability, making sure to take into consideration the natural environment and societal issues at each stage of production when creating our products. WHITETREE’s management philosophy, Cycle of Happiness, forms the basis of WHITETREE’s activities, and our aim is to create products that make everyone involved with the WHITETREE brand happy, from producers to consumers and everyone in between.
1) Leading in Wellness
We frequently take part in activities at health promotion events and conferences to promote health awareness and propose healthier living using natural herbs.
2) Aiming for Environmentally Sustainability
We actively reuse fallow land for growing herbs and have begun partnering with local farmers to create sustainable farms. We also hope to spread the idea of growing herb fields on idle land by using useful herbs with high survivability as a method of reusing fallow land in Japan,
3) Efforts to Address Social Issues
In order to support the employment of all kinds of people, we have an ongoing partnership with employment support facilities to provide employment opportunities and entrust them with work such as labelling and packing.
4) Ingredients and Raw Materials
We used selected organic ingredients that are environmentally friendly do not include any artificial fragrances or colourings, and even the teabag material we use is also biodegradable.
5) World Poverty and Gender Equality
We are actively involved in activities that promote women’s advancement, such as helping Rohingya refugee women achieve economic independence in Bangladesh, said to be the poorest country in the world. When you purchase WHITETREE products, a portion of the proceeds are sent as support funds through a partner company.
