Nature X Design is a Pro Bono initiative of TEALEAVES with the mission of exploring environmental and social issues. As a collective, we are seeking to solve intractable problems through the lens of design principles.
In designing the perfect environment for connection and reflection in this virtual time, we draw inspiration from our roots: the philosophy and ritual of sharing a humble cup of tea. As a natural vessel designed for connection and learning, not only does tea have a deeply rooted history of bringing people together, it intentionally cultivates a moment of pause and mindfulness.
This metaphor is imbued in our stories, films, and explorations. Our intention is to create a community that replicates this feeling of openness, reflection, and sharing of one's time and one's passions in pursuit of a brighter future for people and the planet.
Much like tea blending is an art in which the final cup is an expression greater than the sum of its parts, the impact we can have together far outweighs that of a lone actor.
