Farming

This Anise was produced on 4 farms across Egypt using a form of organic agriculture, called biodynamic agriculture which is a sustainable form of agriculture that protects the environment and biodiversity.

The factory waste is responsibly managed.

Factory workers work in safe conditions; they attend music concerts and a class of their choice weekly to promote happiness at work.

Energy-saving measures are taken and renewable energy is promoted to reduce the environmental footprint.

True Cost Accounting

Unsustainable production practices cost us a lot, but this is not reflected on their price tags. Often we find sustainable products more expensive but in reality, if we include the external costs of the product they will be cheaper than the unsustainable products. We encourage everyone to look for the True prices, and so we did the True price calculation for this Anise Tea

Indirect Costs include:

WATER

REPROCESSING

Society is paying tax to reprocess water from agricultural pesticides and herbicides, as well as the irresponsible disposal of waste water from of factories.

HEALTH COSTS

 

The use of pesticides in agriculture eventually affects the human body and therefore increases medical treatment costs.

ENVIRONMENTAL

DAMAGE

Society has to bear the long-term cost caused by disruptive agriculture e.g. soil erosion, desertification, loss of biodiversity.
