To offer a good or a service, all businesses need to buy raw materials, final products or other services. Depending on their origin, on the production or extraction method used, interchangeable raw materials and goods/services will have another impact on biodiversity.

Organic herbal teas from Tilman – a biodiversity-friendly choice

Organic herbal teas from Tilman – a biodiversity-friendly choice Tilman has developed a range of herbal teas based on regional plants from organic agriculture, which means without pesticides or chemical fertilizers. An important choice when one knows that 4 out of 5 plants or flowers sold in Europe contain pesticides that are believed to be responsible for the decline of bees. The use of pesticides, chemical fertilizers etc. also have an impact on birds typical of water environments: in Europe, their population has been reduced by half since 1980.
