Protecting the planet with WWF

The World Wildlife Fund is best known as the world’s leading independent conservation body. Like Pukka, it sees how the health of the planet is intimately connected to our own health and happiness, and so works to protect wildlife, plants and the environment. We’re privileged to be renewing our partnership with WWF for the second year in a row, after helping to raise over £66,000 for its conservation work last year.

The Vata Dosha

Known as the wind, the vata dosha is the energy pattern that drives our bodily movements and communications. Once you understand its light, airy and cold qualities, you can keep it in perfect balance with the right diet, exercise and lifestyle. When in balance, the vata dosha brings real health advantages including more energy, more creativity, and more mental tranquillity.

The Pitta Dosha

Pitta is said to be the ‘fire’ in your belly thanks to its fire-like qualities. Yet pitta is less fire and more a perfect symbiosis of fire and water, which takes charge of bodily transformations, including digestion, metabolism and generation of energy. As you might expect, pitta people tend to be fiery in both their mind and body but, with the right guidance, they can balance pitta’s hot, sharp nature and enjoy life full of vitality.

The Kapha Dosha

In Ayurvedic tradition, kapha is believed to be a combination of the elements earth and water. The word kapha literally means, ‘that which flourishes in water’ – an ideal aphorism for this dosha which is thought to govern the moisture and structure of the body. As you might expect, kapha people are very solid, full of love and compassion – indeed, they are your best friend in times of need.

Growing guggul in Rajasthan

The true value of guggul is a sticky golden resin that lies within its twiggy branches, so valuable it was once a gift given to kings. Nowadays, guggul is as valuable and popular as ever, but sadly over-harvesting is leaving its numbers in decline and the entire species under threat. To help conserve this powerful natural treasure, we’ve partnered with an organic project in a remote area of Rajasthan.

Meet the family, Pukka growers

Behind every cup of delicious Pukka tea is a person, family, or community on the other side of the world that made that cup of tea possible. From Mr Shastry in India to Filip in Bulgaria, our growers are far from remote traders, they’re our partners and many have become our friends.

The extraordinary Mr Shastry

Mr Shastry is no conventional farmer. Based in South India, he’s a visionary for a better world, a pioneer in India’s organic movement, and a committed conservation activist. We’ve worked with Mr Shastry since 2001, buying much of our organic Ashwagandha, Ginger, Brahmi, Tulsi and Turmeric from him. Not only is he an inspiration, he’s proof that herbs change lives.
