Tea tree suppliers

Mitigating climate change impacts in our supply chain

 

As we visit our suppliers around the world, we've come across some really inspiring stories from farmers taking steps to protect their crops from climate change related impacts. For example, our tea tree essential oil producers in Nanyuki, Kenya, survived a drought that devastated their region in 2008 by building a series of small ponds to help conserve water. Some of the farmers also use the ponds for fish: extra protein for the family and a secondary source of income too! We’re busy visiting and talking to more of our suppliers to find our what their challenges are and how we can support them.
