In today’s world its important to look for ways to minimize our impact on the planet while still getting the things we need like food and nutrients, clothes and shelter. So many of our daily products are made with wasteful products, it’s a complex balance. We do our best to recycle, and we make choices that improve our health and the health of our environment. Sustainable cultures are a way for all of us to get some of what we need from a source that will continue to produce it if the conditions are right. In this way we can reduce our need to outsource our vitality and sustainability.

An endless supply. They will produce as much kombucha tea as you would like, as long as you care for them properly. This is truly a benefit of brewing your own kombucha at home.
