RefuTea shows how compassionate business can help others

Autumn Modena and Jenna Petersen founded RefuTea to offer hope for refugees from all over the world.

I met with them earlier this week to talk about their company, which has only been in business for a year and is already on a positive trajectory. 

Part of RefuTea's plan allocates a tenth of the profits from tea sales to refugee resettlement programs. Currently RefuTea sells six different teas from it's website, www.refuteashop.com. Refugees are also considered for employment at the company's packaging facility, and--once it's built--the RefuTea Greenhouse Tea Cafe.
