When You Love Great Tea and the Planet

100% of Our Tea Offerings Are Rainforest Alliance Certified™

People are looking for brands they can feel good about.

92% of global consumers would buy a product with social and/or environmental benefit if given the opportunity, and 67 percent have actually done so within the previous 12 months.*

To achieve Rainforest Alliance certification, a wide range of criteria need to be met across environmental, economic, and social factors, including:

  • Water conservation
  • Wildlife protection
  • Soil management
  • Fair treatment and good conditions for workers

    Lipton® and Red Rose® Teas Are Made in a Zero-Landfill Facility

    The Lipton® Tea manufacturing plant in Suffolk, Virginia, is able to conserve:

    • 16 tons of plastic, which reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 13.76 tons
    • 21,182 mature trees, the equivalent of 262 million sheets of newspaper
    • 576,898 gallons of oil, enough to heat and cool 2,856 homes for a year
    • 29,904 gallons of gasoline, enough to drive more than 837,000 miles in the average car
    • 8,722,000 gallons of water, enough to meet the daily fresh water needs of 116,293 Americans
    • 5,108,600 kilowatt hours of electricity, or a year’s supply of power for more than 425 average homes
