All Pukka’s teas are certified ‘Fair for Life’. Fair for Life is one of the fairest, most equitable and transparent fair trade systems in the world. It guarantees that everyone who Pukka touches, from crop to cup across the globe is treated fairly, equitably and transparently.
Around half of all herbs in any products are harvested from the wild. Unsustainable harvesting of potentially vulnerable wild plants and herbs can endanger local ecosystems as well as the livelihoods of the collectors who often belong to the poorest social groups. 34 of our organic teas are certified FairWild, guaranteeing that the plants Pukka uses from the wild have been harvested in a sustainable way and that the collectors have been paid fairly for their work.
All of the herbs we use in our teas and well being supplements are 100% certified organic. Even the string on each bag is organic. Research shows that organic fields and farms typically contain on average over 50% more species than fields managed using conventional methods. So for Pukka, organic is a way of living lightly on the planet and giving back as much as the organisation takes – hence why organic is a fundamental philosophy.

In 2016 Pukka became a B Corp, joining a global movement of like minded organisations using business as a force for good to drive social and environmental change. B Corps are rigorously audited to ensure an ongoing commitment to meet the highest possible standards of transparency, accountability and performance, ultimately offering a positive vision of a better way to do business.
