We want to help build infrastructure in our community that will sustain the advancements we are making
Denver, CO (PRWEB) March 8, 2011
These days, there’s a lot of talk about being responsible, but how many companies truly back up their words with actions? Teatulia, creators of exquisite whole leaf tea, are pleased to announce the Teatulia Library Project.
Teatulia teas are grown in their own tea garden nestled between the Himalayas and the Ganges River in Northern Bangladesh. The garden was established as a cooperative open to the workers and neighbors in surrounding villages. During the month of March, Teatulia is striving to raise $2,000 in direct donations to build a new library for their local school in Tetlia, Bangladesh. Consumers who wish to help can visit http://www.teatulia.com to make donations in any amount. Teatulia co-founder Linda Appel Lipsius will personally deliver the check when she visits the garden this April. “We want to help build infrastructure in our community that will sustain the advancements we are making,” explains Lipsius. “By definition, part of the culture of Teatulia is the notion of giving back, so the choice was a natural progression.”
With only 17% of the governmental budget allocated to education in Bangladesh, Teatulia’s cooperative has been imperative to improving literacy among adults and children. Other examples of social programs include a cattle-lending program, distribution of herbal and medicinal plants and safe hygiene practices.
