Guardians of the Trees

Health in Harmony's Guardians of the Trees

When Kinari Webb first traveled to Indonesian Borneo at 21 to study orangutans, she was both awestruck by the beauty of her surroundings and heartbroken by the rainforest destruction she witnessed. As she got to know the local communities, she realized that their need to pay for expensive healthcare led directly to the rampant logging, which in turn imperiled their health and safety even further. Webb realized her true calling was at the intersection of medicine and conservation.

We’re honored to be a part of a brighter future for the farmers who work so hard to produce our teas, and we hope you’ll join us in this journey. Everytime you purchase a tea, 1% of your purchase goes towards North India's first community-owned tea factory. This factory will be a blueprint for a model of sustainable change in the tea industry—first in Champawat, then across Kumaon, and eventually throughout the Himalayas and the world.
