Community and sustainability lie at the heart of Mijenta’s mission. Our approach to sustainability is holistic and seeks to have a positive effect across the stages of the product lifecycle. From the beginning, we have worked to be as environmentally responsible as possible while also delivering benefits to local communities.
We work to create a positive, lasting impact. Today, we are proud to be the only tequila to earn B-Corp certification. This means we met or exceeded assessment criteria measuring our social impact across categories including corporate governance, the environment, community, employees and customers.
"Through innovation, close collaboration with local suppliers and partnerships with like-minded organizations, we have worked from the outset to create a positive, lasting impact. For us, sustainability is about leaving a better world for our children, and we are excited to do even more as we continue to grow."
Co-founder & director of sustainability, Elise Som
Our agave never uses pesticides or herbicides. To help preserve strong agave for the future, Mijenta ensures that 10% of the plants are with quiote, which allows greater genetic variation.
Our labels are created locally from agave waste. Our bottles are produced using recycled glass. The Blanco and Reposado boxes are made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper, while the Añejo Gran Reserva box is made from material certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.
