Sustainable Cuppas: Kenya Tea Goes Climate Friendly

KENYA: March 26, 2007

NAIROBI – As the world tries to climate-proof everything from cars to factories, your cup of tea may be about to become a bit more environmentally friendly.

A UN project being launched in Kenya will help about a dozen tea plantations build mini-hydropower dams to cut their energy costs, and maybe even export clean electricity to the national grid or rural electrification schemes.

Not a lot of commentary about this article. It’s pretty self-evident that there are multiple positive impacts here. You all know my passion for tea as well as for the environment. To read an article about something environmentally friendly happening in the tea industry is the best of all worlds to me, and I’m really excited to share this article!
