|Guayakí Yerba Mate is organically shade grown in the rainforest and in reemerging forests. The forest’s growth captures enough carbon dioxide to make Guayakí’s yerba mate carbon footprint negative over its production cycle.||Every step of processing the mate, from the drying process to the energy used to put mate into this bag, produces emissions. We assessed each of these steps to determine their respective impact.||The life-cycle emissions of this packaging, from raw material extraction to final disposal, produces 11g of carbon emissions.||We calculated the emissions from transporting the yerba mate, including moving from the drying facility to the sea port, shipping from South America by boat, and trucking to the retailer||
For every pound (454 grams) of Guayakí Yerba Mate, 573 grams of carbon are REDUCED from the environment.
