Do Good

At Yogi it’s not just about creating deliciously purposeful teas. With every ingredient we source, and every cup of tea we make, we strive to support quality, sustainability and social responsibility on a local, national and global level.

Our Commitment

At Yogi, we embrace our founding values, as well as the values of our partners and customers, illustrating our desire to “do good” on a local, national and global level. We do this with every ingredient we source – over 140 from around 50 countries – and through numerous programs that support quality, sustainability and social responsibility.

Our Local Partnerships

At Yogi, we are proud to partner with other local, small businesses in Oregon. In 2016, through our local partner, Food For Lane County, we donated over 2,300,000 servings of tea to local food banks for distribution to people in need.

Another example is our decade-long partnership with non-profit organization Pearl Buck Center. They provide work and vocational training to adults with developmental disabilities. The work they do for Yogi helps develop skills that can be applied to more full-time positions in the community.

Our Contributions for Peace

Each year, Yogi contributes over $500,000 to non-profit organizations that train people in techniques of relaxation and peace of mind in more than 100 countries around the world.

Medadumbara Organic Society

The Medadumbara Organic Society is a grower community in Sri Lanka where we source three main ingredients used in the majority of Yogi teas: Cinnamon Oil, Cloves and Black Pepper. We at Yogi are honored that we’ve established a partnership here that goes beyond buying ingredients. Yogi partners with the region by funding a scholarship program for children of the farmers to support them in getting an education, including access to education beyond high school.
