Our Focus on Sustainability

Drink Me! Tea Room is committed to sustainability efforts in our tea room and in our community. Since opening, it has been a mission of ours to always find ways to help our environment and the people that visit us. We are committed to being a positive force for the future of our planet through environmental sustainability, social responsibility and waste reduction. We are excited to announce that we have recently been awarded status as a Certified Green Business in Arizona by Local First Arizona. Also through our efforts, we were awarded Sustainable Business of the year for 2022 by the City of Tempe.

The mission of Drink Me! Tea Room is to provide a sustainable business that has less impact on the environment. Being an organic plant-based establishment, we reduce our environmental footprint, energy consumption and waste. We maintain policies and practices for the efficient use of energy, water and natural resource consumption. The policy has been developed by Owner Melissa Harlan as a fundamental basis for how we do business. We focus our efforts on:
