Bigelow Tea Reports On Penn State Research That Says Green Tea May Keep Your Mouth Safe From Certain Forms Of Cancer
Yes, Bigelow Tea in a big mug can warm your hands and it can bring delicious aromas to your nose … but it’s the mouth that really gets to enjoy Bigelow Tea. The mouth is the gateway to Bigelow Tea’s rich flavors and that soothing sensation of sipping and swallowing tea. Now there’s news that Green Tea may actually keep your mouth safe from some forms of cancer! Read on.
A new Pennsylvania State University study published in Molecular Nutrition and Food stated that green tea might kill oral cancer cells, and boost healthy ones. In the study the authors found that a compound in green tea triggers a process in the cancerous cells’ mitochondria that leads to early cell death. A previous study in 2002 found that green tea could induce cancer cell death and suggested “regular consumption of green tea could be beneficial in the prevention of oral cancer.”
This is exciting news! So, in addition to tasting good, keeping you warm and making special memories, Bigelow Green Tea might keep your mouth healthy. Another wonderful reason to enjoy Bigelow Tea during its milestone 70th year! @DarlenyGomezR tweeted that she might be obsessed with Bigelow’s green tea … are you?
Bigelow Tea is serious about protecting the environment and the planet year round. This week the employees at Bigelow Tea will celebrate National Environmental Education Week and Earth Day. The philosophy of doing the right thing was started 70 years ago by Ruth Campbell Bigelow and remains an important part of Bigelow Tea under the direction of third Generation President and CEO Cindi Bigelow.
Bigelow Tea is proud of its sustainability efforts in energy conservation, waste reduction, and land preservation. Bigelow Tea achieved a company-wide commitment to achieve “Zero Waste to Landfill” in 2013. Aggressive recycling, raw material reduction, and compost methods (which includes utensils and bowls in our cafeteria) are paired with employee education and active Green Teams throughout the company, allowing Bigelow Tea proclaim Zero Waste to Landfill status in all three of its manufacturing facilities. This means that no more than 10 percent of waste ends up in a landfill. This is just one of the many ways Bigelow Tea shows its dedication to sustainable business practices.
Bigelow Tea drinkers can help do their part for the environment by recycling Bigelow tea bags and boxes. 85% of Bigelow Tea’s packaging is biodegradeble or recyclable. Facebook follower Gene Young says “We are all about recycling … we are part of a community program that makes sure we are doing as much as we can and our Bigelow boxes are part of that effort each and every week.” You can get creative too and upcycle Bigelow Tea foils and boxes. Everyone can do his or her part to keep our earth beautiful for generations to come.

Bigelow Tea and millions of tea lovers know that a great cup of tea is an important part of the morning … not to mention the afternoon, evening and all day long! Bigelow Tea fan @ohionmommy14 tweeted those exact sentiments: “Love drinking Bigelow Tea any time of day!” Bigelow Tea never tires hearing from tea devotees who enjoy their daily cup(s).
Of course there are many celebrities around the world who report that tea is a big part of their day. One is the renowned French fashion designer Christian Louboutin, who has infused his shiny, red-lacquered shoe-sole designs across the fashion world (with half a million pairs sold each year)! He enthusiastically shared in a recent interview that his mornings include “Liters and liters and gallons and gallons of tea.” Turns out Mr. Louboutin is as passionate about his tea as he is about five inch heels and innovative patterns!
