07 Jun 2011 Mahamosa – Tea with a Giving Heart
I often say that one of the greatest benefits of operating a green business is all of the extraordinary people and companies we get to meet. Our new friends at Mahamosa are a perfect example.
Social Responsibility and Environmental Responsibility
For most green companies, it is not a choice of one or the other; the question is how best to accomplish both. We try to make the environmental part of that objective as easy as possible by providing our customers the most eco-friendly packaging available. The nice people at Mahamosa quickly agreed that our Globe Guard® 100% PCW recycled content corrugated shipping boxes were consistent with their goals and messaging.
They also take their social responsibility very seriously and decided to spend a little extra and have their boxes printed in three colors on all four panels. The copy includes their all important “Being in the World” mission statement. Mahamosa has committed to contributing 50% of their after tax net profits to a variety of great organizations including World Wildlife Foundation, UNICEF, Save the Children, Water.org and the International Committee of the Red Cross, just to name a few.
Teas, Spices and Herbs with a Powerful Message
I will be totally honest and admit I am not a tea drinker so I have not personally tasted any of the products. I assume, however, that the products are of high quality like the people and their company.
What I find most impressive is not the unusual three-color graphics they chose for their shipping boxes or even the 100% PCW construction. After all, all of our customers are determined to use attractive, low cost, eco-friendly packaging whenever possible. No, what really makes Mahamosa unique is the example they are setting for an entire industry and for all of us in business who call ourselves responsible.
I encourage you to visit their web site and see what they are doing to bring wonderful flavors and much needed help to some deserving organizations.
