Earth Day is a time to celebrate nature and consider how our actions make a difference for the future. The University of Montana, where the Elephant Friendly™ idea was founded as a result of extensive research and community work in partnership with the Wildlife Friendly Enterprise Network. This campus is now going Elephant Friendly™ for Earth Week with the launch of sales of Elephant Friendly™ products on campus. To celebrate Earth Week this year, students, faculty, staff and visitors are invited to drop by The Market in the University Center between 11 am and 1 pm on Tuesday, April 23, for a free cup of tea and a preview of the latest Certified Elephant Friendly™ products from India’s first Certified Elephant Friendly™ farms. Visitors will have the chance to enter their name into a drawing for free Elephant Friendly™ Tea products.
The University of Montana Dining Services is moving towards a more sustainable future with the selection of products that reduce impact on the environment, and in the case of Elephant Friendly™ Tea, actually encourage positive change from farm to cup. The campus community will have the chance to support elephant conservation by the cup by drinking Certified Elephant Friendly™ Tea, now on shelves and being sold by the cup at The Market. The tea sales will help support tea farmers and their communities sustain Elephant Friendly™ practices, which in turn helps reverse the decline of Asian elephants in the wild by providing safe passage and improved habitat for dwindling elephant populations.
