Community Support: From Local to Global

Celestial Seasonings has always believed that the goodness of our teas should be exceeded only by the goodness of our actions toward our world. We know that our efforts truly make a difference in our local community and all around the world, so we give back to charities and social organizations in our home state of Colorado, across the country and around the world.

B Strong Ride: We’re title sponsors of the Celestial Seasonings B Strong Ride, a family cycling event that raises funds for organizations like Boulder Community Hospital’s Cancer Center, the George Karl Foundation and other local and national cancer charities. The inaugural ride in 2011 raised more than $250,000, and that total increased that total to $325,000 in 2012. We're looking forward to making 2013 even bigger and better!
etown: We’re proud to be national sponsors of etown’s weekly radio broadcast. etown's mission is “to educate, entertain and inspire a diverse audience, through music and conversation, to create a socially responsible and environmentally sustainable world.” We couldn’t agree more!
Community Shares of Colorado: For more than a decade, we’ve supported the good work of this homegrown nonprofit group through a company-wide fundraiser each holiday season. Community Shares provides funding and raises awareness for more than 100 local charities in our community (from human and health services and animal welfare to the arts, women's issues, social change and the environment). Since 1995, we have donated more than $150,000 to Community Shares member agencies.
St. Baldrick's Foundation: Our employee team of "Bald Zingers" has collected more than $32,000 in donations for annual St. Baldrick's Foundation Shave-a-Thons.
Bonfils Blood Center of Colorado: Our employees give of themselves – literally – during twice-annual blood drives here at our Boulder headquarters. Over the past 30 years, our people have donated more than 1800 units of blood to assist Bonfils’ life-saving efforts. In 2010, we received the Bonfils “30 Years of Saving Lives” award for our continuing efforts.
Trees For The Future: We sponsored the planting of more than one million trees by Trees for the Future, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve the standard of living of people around the world through beneficial tree planting and resource education.
Best Buddy Program: Best Buddy Program. We've donated thousands of stuffed Sleepytime Bears to help children who have had traumatic experiences work through their communication barriers.
National Breast Cancer Foundation: We created a special line of healthy, delicious green teas for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Our donation assisted NBCF in their mission to increase breast cancer awareness through education and provide mammograms to those in need.
Conservation International: Through our fun and interactive “PossibiliTEAS” program on Facebook, we donated $50,000 to CI’s Protect An Acre program – saving more than 3,000 acres of threatened tropical forests in crucial habitats.
Blue Sky Bridge and Family Advocacy Program: We support this program that works to end child abuse through prevention and intervention.
Emergency Family Assistance Association: We contribute to this group to help members of our local community meet their daily needs and work toward self-sufficiency.
Doctors Without Borders: To help provide relief for Haiti, we matched individual donations made by our employees and visitors to our tour center to this nonprofit provider of urgently needed medical assistance.
We're active members of the American Botanicals Council (ABC), the Organic Trade Association (OTA), the Organic Center for Education and Promotion (OCEP), the American Spice Trade Association (ASTA) and the Tea Association of the USA.
In addition to receiving generous benefits like wellness and tuition reimbursement, our employees are encouraged to donate their time and efforts toward the charitable causes that are most important to them.
