As part of Bigelow Tea’s Earth Day 2015 celebration, members of the Bigelow Tea Green Team partnered with the Bridgeport Rescue Mission and planted two trees on their main campus on Fairfield Avenue.

The planting of trees especially in urban areas helps the environment in so many ways. Bigelow Tea has long supported the work done by Bridgeport Rescue Mission and has supported the organization by donating a portion of the proceeds from the Bigelow Road Race to the worthy causes that are performed by the Mission. Bigelow Tea also has conducted coat drives and collected toiletries on their behalf. In addition, all the organically grown produce from the Bigelow Tea Community Garden over the past two years of has been donated to the Mission.

The Bridgeport Rescue Mission helps those in need in the community. On any given night, more than 1,000 people are homeless on the streets of Bridgeport, Norwalk and Stamford, and there are more than 200 homeless people in Bridgeport’s downtown area. The Mission helps by providing 40,000 nights of shelter a year and 600,000 meals a year.
