Zhena Muzyka, Founder and "Mistress of Tea" of "Zhena's Gypsy Tea" will speak on the Fair Trade Supply Chain at Whole Foods Venice. This event is co-organized with the EcoTuesday Meetup group by Lia who organizes for both groups.
"As one of the early pioneers of the organic and Fair Trade movement and the founder of Zhena’s Gypsy Tea, Zhena Muzyka believed that by selling tins of tea she could become a purveyor of hope and a conduit for change. Zhena’s company doesn't just market products, it markets meaning, teas with a commitment to social responsibility, sustainability and the well-being of others. Zhena’s Gypsy Tea is a community minded, pro-active company and works directly with small growers and out of the way tea gardens and affects change by providing these workers with healthcare, guaranteed maternity leave, childcare, literacy, better working conditions, and autonomy (from EcoTuesday Meetup Group). "
