The Focus on the Future category is awarded to the company with an initiative in sustainability that exemplifies a game-changing effort to fuse the principles of sustainability into its core business practices.

Teatulia is an exquisite line of organic teas grown from their own single garden in the Teatulia region of Northern Bangladesh. The Teatulia Cooperative creates sustainable prosperity for Bangladeshi women, men and children through education, entrepreneurship, health and cattle-lending programs. Specific examples of these social programs include: poverty alleviation through cattle rearing, health and hygiene programs, adult literary education, recreational programs for the youth and distribution of herbal and medicinal plants.
“As consumers become increasingly more aware of the importance of living in an eco-conscious fashion, our leadership position has become that much more important,” explained
Teatulia co-founder and CEO Linda Appel Lipsius. “To truly show our devotion to the future, we focus on it from a 360 degree perspective. With mindful attention to the three pillars of sustainability—environment, society and economy—we encompass a comprehensive approach that we’re thrilled that Naturally Boulder has recognized.”
