We use organic and local ingredients whenever possible. This means we use non-GMO ingredients that are free from toxins, pesticides, and fertilizers. We try to do our part to support local farmers and businesses.
We compost our ingredients including our juice pulp, our tea, and our SCOBYs! We compost all of this which reduces landfill waste and emissions, and nourishes the soil. We even use compostable cups, lids, and straws. Our favorite straws are made out of pasta!
Not only do we recycle but we also have a refillable growler program to help reduce waste. In everything we do at Shanti Elixirs, we try to minimize waste. Waste is one of the biggest contributors to climate change and environmental deterioration, and our goal is to help change that. We also upcycle our bottles and use them for vases and have seen customers use them as soap dispensers.
We’re always looking for ways to reduce our footprint. We have a built-in filtration system, we use solar power, we gift bottle caps to creative people and we encourage our customers to plant pollinator-friendly gardens by donating seed packets. We support honeybee organizations with money and product donations. We support our community by purchasing raw honey and local produce and we are committed to producing a clean and authentic product for our community to enjoy.
We have a strong commitment to the real food movement. We honor this commitment not only by making real Jun but also by offering education and support to our community.
We support organizations like The Good of the Hive by giving them 10% of the profits from our seasonal flavors. We also collaborate with organizations like Bears, Bees, and Brews with specialty flavors and donations.
Bee Awareness & Sustainability
Our honey bee population is declining and part of our mission at Shanti Elixirs is to save the honeybees by expanding our Blissful Bee Apiary, growing pollinator-friendly gardens, opening up a non-profit educational honeybee sanctuary, and supporting other bee organizations.
If the honey bees disappear so will many of our favorite foods such as chocolate, apples, blueberries, almonds, and avocados. Honey bee pollination contributes to over 150 crops in the United States which is over $20 billion worth of crops every year.
The following are some groups you can support who are working for bee and pollinator health, awareness and education:
