This week is FairWild week, it’s all about raising awareness of the wild plant ingredients that are in products we consume every day, ranging from beauty to foods, home furnishings and even food supplements. They often come from some of the most biodiverse ecosystems on earth, and are collected by some of the most impoverished communities – often women. It’s these indigenous communities that hold the heritage of plant knowledge, understanding how much can be sustainably harvested from the wild. Without this knowledge we are often endangering wild plants through overharvesting and exploitation.
The FairWild Foundation is committed to building a fairer, more ethical and empowered world for people who rely on wild plant collection through a FairWild premium, whilst also ensuring the protection of plants through sustainable harvesting. In short – FairWild certification is helping to protect plants, people, and wildlife. All at once.
Wherever possible we choose FairWild ingredients for our organic herbal teabags, so not only do they taste great but they have the feel-good factor too!
I find this tea perfect for times when my head is busy and I need some mental space or quiet time, it’s perfect after work or for a mid-afternoon cuppa! The main ingredients are sweetly floral, with chamomile, FairWild certified lime flower from Hungary and Poland, rose, comforting lemon balm, fresh spearmint and FairWild certified liquorice from Spain.
