Of course, the break room is also a great place to indulge in a cup of tea.
Matt and his wife, Rachel Tracy, also a Walmart associate, are big tea drinkers. Matt prefers his Great Value black tea iced, while Rachel drinks green tea and sometimes herbal tea as well. “Great Value teas have a really developed flavor, and of course you can’t beat the price.”
What's more, Great Value's traditional black and green teas are now certified sustainable through the Rainforest Alliance. This means that three pillars of sustainability are being met: social, environmental and economic. The Rainforest Alliance evaluates farms based on these pillars and provides training to farmers so they can continue growing their skillset.
Matt and Rachel are parents of a one-year-old son, Hank. Matt says since Hank was born, things like farming conditions and concern for the environment have a renewed importance to him. "It makes me feel good to know that the company is doing the right thing for the earth and the next generation.”
Just like Matt, we want to continue to make a positive impact and leave the planet better than we found it.
