Teakoe Sustainability

Teakoe’s strong partnership with area companies have helped us integrate a comprehensive sustainability program to cut down on waste and conserve energy.  By consciously capitalizing on the various programs, services and packaging available we are able to quietly make the marketplace and environment of how we do business - better! 

Teakoe Comittment 2 Conservation

WIND POWERED FACILITY

Our manufacturing facility is powered by renewable energy through Xcel Energy’s Windsourse Program.  With this commitment we are able to meet environmental goals and help achieve LEED certification

ON-SITE RECYCLING PROGRAM

All paper products, plastics and glass are recycled through the cities recycling program.

LOW EMISSIONS DELIVERY VEHICLE

For deliveries, we use a Honda Element for several reasons: it is certified LEV (Low-Emissions Vehicle) and gets 25 MPG with all wheel drive which ensures that regardless of the ever-changing Colorado weather, your tea will be delivered.

ENERGY EFFICIENT LIGHTING

Our facility is equipped with T8 Linear Ultra-Efficient Lighting which is 50% more efficient then traditional tube lighting, has 40% longer lifecycle and enhanced light quality while putting out ½ as much heat

ECO-FRIENDLY PACKAGING

Our retail packaging is made from 100% recyclable paperboard and printed using vegetable / soy based ink.  Additionally, our commercial foodservice boxes are made from post-consumer recycled fiber.

COMPOSTABLE TEA BYPRODUCT

Our craft teas are fully compostable and help plants suppress disease with beneficial organisms such as bacteria, yeast or fungi and reduce the need for fertilizers.  Our Craft Teas help improve plant growth and uptake of nutrients while increasing the plant’s nutritional quality.
