Cuppas For Causes & Ethics
Cuppas for Causes – Our Charity Initiative
Launched in January 2014, we are supporting the Prince’s Trust and helping more people live their lives on purpose.
- We are committed to sourcing high quality leaf tea. Therefore, as part of this, we travel to tea gardens around the world.
- We are a proud member of the Ethical Tea Partnership: this is a not for profit membership organisation that works to improve tea sustainability, the lives of tea workers and the environment in which tea is produced.
- Moreover, through eteaket’s Cuppas for Causes campaign, we partake in various activities and events to give something back to our local community, the tea world and the environment at large.
- We work with the ‘Health in Mind’ charity promoting mental health & wellbeing in Scotland.
Aberlour Children’s Trust: our mentoring scheme & fundraising
We worked with Aberlour Children’s Trust hosting events, raising funds and awareness for this amazing charity, including our own mentoring scheme.
