Numi has joined CommonKindness to help foster a healthy, thriving global community through the funding of nonprofits.

We're in constant awe of the dedication that Numi fans show to serving the causes they support.

Oakland, CA (PRWEB) July 14, 2012

Numi Organic Tea, well known for its premium full-leaf organic and fair trade certified teas and commitment to the quadruple bottom line—people, planet, profits and product—has joined CommonKindness to help foster a healthy, thriving global community through the funding of nonprofits.

With new printable grocery coupons for Numi Organic Tea on http://www.CommonKindness.com, consumers can save money and choose which organization will receive funds each time they redeem a Numi Organic Tea coupon.

“We're in constant awe of the dedication that Numi fans show to serving the causes they support,” said Numi Co-Founder, CEO and Chief Alchemist, Ahmed Rahim. “CommonKindness provides another opportunity for them to further support the organizations they care about by simply using coupons and saving money while they shop.”

Numi is committed to inspiring the well-being of mind, body and spirit, and bringing the world the purest, best-tasting organic tea available. Resonating with the CommonKindness goal of helping others, the initiatives of Numi Organic Tea are rooted in the principle of creating a healthful product that celebrates people, the planet and pure tea.

People – Fair Trade
Numi values the people involved in every step of the business, from direct and fair trade sourcing and supply chain audits, to a collaborative and diverse company culture. As a founding B Corp member and the leading importer brand of fair trade teas in the United States in 2010, Numi ensures equitable wages and opportunities for its dedicated team by sourcing directly from fair labor gardens.

In Numi Organic Tea's fair trade program, workers vote on how fair trade premiums are invested in their community. Premiums have funded new roads, cooking stoves, mosquito nets, new schools, college scholarships, enhanced maternity benefits, onsite medical staff, and life insurance.

Planet – Thoughtful Choices
Committed to reduce its impact on the environment, Numi Organic Tea’s award-winning sustainable packaging is 100% biodegradable or recyclable. The company uses natural biodegradable filter-paper, tea bags, and shipping boxes made from 85% post-consumer waste and printed with soy-based ink. Numi operates its production facility on solar power and works with suppliers to incorporate sustainability into every facet of the supply chain.

Pure Tea – Why Organic?
When people purchase non-organic foods, they usually rinse off the dirt, fertilizers, and other impurities before eating it. Tea, however, is not washed prior to consumption—it goes directly into bags after being picked and processed. This means that if any harmful chemicals are used in the garden, they end up in the cup.

“As one who enjoys sipping a freshly steeped cup of Numi Organic Teas on my deck each morning, I am personally excited that we are able to offer their coupons on CommonKindness,” said Sarah Schloemer, president of CommonKindness. “Not only does it allow consumers to save and help fund charities, the coupons increase visibility and awareness of Numi’s just business practices, which are really great for the planet.”

To find and use Numi Organic Tea coupons, shoppers simply go to http://www.CommonKindness.com, quickly register and designate their favorite nonprofit from the user-friendly directory. Then they print out grocery coupons for items they typically use or want to try, and head to the store. For each coupon redeemed, CommonKindness provides 20% of the distribution fee it receives from the brand to the shopper’s designated nonprofit.
