Our Purpose

We believe our purpose in business is to serve. Yogi was founded on this belief and still uses the idea of using business to serve as its guiding principle:

“Feel Good, Be Good, Do Good.”

For us, this means more than just creating deliciously purposeful herbal tea blends. With every ingredient we source, and every cup of tea we make, we strive to support quality, sustainability and social responsibility on a local, national and global level.

Food For Lane County

Together with this local partner, we are on a mission to eliminate hunger in our area by providing better access to food and beverage. For over a decade, we have worked with the FOOD For Lane County team to donate tea to Oregon food banks for distribution; providing over 2.3 million servings of Yogi tea in 2016 alone.

Pearl Buck Center

A decade-long partner, Pearl Buck Center is a local non-profit organization that provides vocational training to adults with developmental disabilities. Through this relationship, we are able to connect with these special individuals in our community to develop skills that they can apply toward gaining full-time, stable employment.

Day Of Giving

Every year, we take a time to pause all production and dedicate ourselves to support friends and local non-profit organizations; including Relief NurserySunshine Division and the Friends of Buford Park and Mt. Pisgah.

Susan G. Komen of Oregon & SW Washington

We’re honored to support Oregon’s local Susan G. Komen Foundation chapter each year as sponsors of the Eugene Race for the Cure. In addition to our sponsorship, the Yogi team supports as both race-day volunteers and race participants.
