Jahmu PBC is a certified public benefit corporation on a mission to help you get more turmeric and ginger into your daily diet. We make delicious organic turmeric-ginger chai mixes that can be mixed into water like tea, made into golden milk, or added to smoothies and food.
Jahmu PBC has fundamentally changed the way people drink tea. Our flagship product, Caffeine Free Turmeric Chai, is an organic spice blend of turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, cardamom and 6 other spices. It comes in a mason jar that makes 226 cups worth of turmeric-ginger tea or a spice jar that makes about 50 cups worth. Established tea companies typically package their tea into tea bags, into wrappers, and into boxes – which results in a lot of waste.
Jahmu PBC is supporting Carbonfund.org because we want to lead the food industry towards long term sustainability. The food industry includes manufacturing (of equipment and packaging), transportation (of ingredients, products, or people going to get food), energy (for manufacturing, transportation, and storage), and, obviously, agriculture. Depending on how the umbrella of the food industry is defined it could easily be considered the greatest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions.
“When shopping for groceries people have many considerations already on their mind including price, flavor, brand, organic status, origin, healthiness, and more. It’s too much to ask of the consumer to also factor in the product’s impact on the environment in terms of greenhouse gas emissions. That’s why we as an industry need to raise our standards and reduce or offset our carbon footprints. Let’s make it a given that people are not destroying the environment when they eat or drink!” – Walter Filkins, Owner
