Protecting Biodiversity

THE FOUNDATION FOR ALL LIFE
IN SUPPORT OF UNITED NATIONS BIODIVERSITY AND WORLD BIODIVERSITY FORUM

“We want to help create a movement and demonstrate that the for-profit sector can be part of the solution, furthering the goals of the social and public sector through fostering multi-layered partnerships to address global challenges.

LANA SUTHERLAND
TEALEAVES CO-FOUNDER & CEO

At TEALEAVES, we embrace a vigorous basis for our actions. We are committed to getting to the root of a problem and tackling it head on. That is why we are focused on supporting and protecting Biodiversity.

There is no part of our lives that biodiversity does not touch - it is the foundation for all life, playing a key role in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

We cannot build a resilient future without biodiversity.

Why Biodiversity?

From the air we breathe to the food we eat, the health of our ecosystems is intimately linked with planetary well-being. Achieving a better understanding of the alarming and unprecedented loss of biodiversity, we soon realized that its ultimate preservation will require systemic and transformative change.

Explore The Ways We Protect Biodiversity

Since planting the first seed with our initial project Garden of Secrets, we have spent half of a decade together growing ideas and blossoming initiatives to further social change.


The Garden of Secrets

Born out of our commitment to the preservation of botanical gardens, we created The Garden of Secrets herbal blend, in which 100% of the proceeds are donated to UBC Botanical Gardens.
 
The signature blend was crafted in close collaboration with UBC Botanical Garden botanists and TEALEAVES Master Blenders, using local, rare botanicals with low carbon footprint and unique health properties.


Organic Wild Himalayan Goji

A collaborative creation with the women of Samagaun and Tergar Charity Nepal, this limited edition blend celebrates wild grown gob-chis, and the women who harvest them.

All proceeds from the purchase of this blend will be donated to the women.

Biodiversity Design Hub

The Biodiversity Design Hub is an interactive and collaborative web space that showcases biodiversity issues and tools for solutions. Open source and constantly growing, this living library is a meeting place for people from all sectors to find inspiration. To solve complex, pluralistic problems, we need adaptable strategies, such as open source web platforms like the Biodiversity Design Hub.
