The Rainforest Alliance is an international nonprofit organization that works to conserve biodiversity and promote the rights and well-being of workers, their families and communities. Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms meet comprehensive standards for sustainable agriculture. On Rainforest Alliance Certified coffee farms, soils, waterways and wildlife are protected; and farm workers benefit from safe working conditions, enjoy dignified housing and medical care, and access to schools for their children.
In the Fall of 2011, Second cup introduced the line of Rainforest Alliance Certified™ Whole Leaf Tea Blends and Herbal Tisanes.
Second cup is committed to sourcing from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms, and certification helps support sustainable environmental, social, and economic development on the farm and in farm communities.
