We careOur kick
For the climate
As a manufacturer, we are aware of our responsibility and want to live up to it: That's why we've given a lot of thought over the past few months and scrutinized our entire production processes down to the last step. The decision was simple and clear: all CO2 emissions generated will be offset with ClimatePartner. This means that every Puerto Mate or El Tony Matethat you pick up in the supermarket, in a club or at your friends' house on the roof terrace has a big, fat 0 in the carbon footprint.
Our heart project
We offset CO2 emissions by supporting reforestation in Uruguay. All projects are regularly audited by independent organizations and are certified according to international standards, so you can be sure that the measures are actually implemented on site. Information about our project can be found here.
We live fairness
We believe that "fairness" and "sustainability" should not only be a label, but a matter of course. Since the mate harvest is brought in by well-trained skilled workers and is manual labor, all our workers are fairly paid and comprehensively socially insured. In addition, we attach particular importance to occupational safety and accident prevention.
How does that work?
With our El Tony Mate cans as well as the bottles we can contribute to climate protection.
- 1. Determining CO2 emissions
Every year, we record the relevant CO2 emission sources of the products and derive measures to avoid and reduce emissions. When calculating the CO2 footprint, we record the CO2 emissions caused, for example, by the materials used, the production process and transport.
- 2. Offsetting CO2 emissions through a climate protection project
Climate protection projects save CO2 - for example by promoting clean wind energy or replacing climate-damaging technologies with climate-friendly alternatives. All projects are regularly audited by independent organizations and certified according to international standards, so you can be sure that the measures are actually implemented on site.
- 3. Check climate contribution
We have worked out our path to climate-friendly production with a partner. This offers full transparency, also for you: By entering the ID number on www.climatepartner.com, you can see how much CO2 has been offset and which climate protection project has been supported. El Tony ID 16632-2106-1001
When it comes to the raw material for our mate tea, we leave nothing to chance. Our mate comes exclusively from our own cultivation at the PINDO farm in Argentina.
- Full traceability
- No detours
- Highest quality: 1mm cut without wood
El Tony Mate Can
- Recycling an aluminum can saves up to 95% energy compared to primary production.
- The aluminum can is 100% recyclable.
- Aluminum is the most recycled material in the world.
- Can transport takes 40% less space than glass bottles.
- Light-tight + airtight + pressure resistant = highest quality.
So that these are not just empty phrases, we appeal to start the cycle. Everyone must collect cans (that's why we support IGORA) so that they can be recycled afterwards. WITH EVERY CAN SOLD WE SUPPORT IGORA!
IGORA coordinates aluminum recycling in all areas of the country, educates about the collection and recycling of aluminum packaging, provides effective collection containers, and much more.
The classic is also available in a bottle
- 92% recycled glass
We are also involved with vetroswiss! vetroswiss is committed to glass recycling on behalf of the Federal Office for the Environment. The same applies here, make your contribution and recycle correctly.
