Highly elevated tea districts, such as Darjeeling or the Kenyan highlands, can support tea without pesticides since pests that typically attack tea cannot survive at the high altitudes. In cases where pesticides are used, Metro ensures all growers meet and exceed European Union or Japanese Minimum Residue Levels, the most stringent in the industry.
Metro's factory recently underwent massive environmental renovations to reduce emissions. Energy consumption was reduced by 66%. Metro Tea purchased a farm and has planted 15,000 white pine and red pine trees. Which also preserves 80 acres of wetlands. Metro Tea finalized construction of a 500 kwh Solar Array on the roof of its factory in Toronto in early 2012. The fully commissioned the array generates more than 4 times the amount of electricity that the factory consumes. They are one of the first global carbon negative tea companies.
