Sustainable Development Goals
In 2015, the United Nations issued 17 Sustainable Development Goals to achieve sustainable development for all.
United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 15:
“protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss”.
Our mission at Monsoon Tea is to protect the forests and biodiversity of Northern Thailand by giving them value through the selling of our Forest Friendly Tea. We can do this because we use the native tea plant species that has been growing naturally in Northern Thailand for thousands of years. By growing tea together with its natural habitat, we can preserve the biodiversity and help reduce the effects of the global carbon footprint.
The massive global market allows us to use this natural tea plant as a tool for generating income to turn the farmers and their communities into protectors of the forest. We make it our responsibility to sell only Forest Friendly grown tea, and provide all our stakeholders with sustainable income and our end-consumers with a sustainable product.
Our philosophy is now contributing to over 12 of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals.
