In his quest to make the royal household as environmentally sustainable as possible, Grand Duke Travis has issued Royal Warrants of Appointment to companies and products that have made global or regional ecology a priority in their business model.

These products are also used by the royal household and by the Grand Duke himself.

The Royal Warrants are intended to better publicize quality products enjoyed by the royal household while encouraging Westarctica's citizens to use environmentally sustainable products in their daily life.

Numi Tea

Numi Tea wins on all fronts: it's delicious, sophisticated, and really nice to the environment.  The company is rooted in the principle of creating a healthful product that nurtures people and honors the planet.


They release a years global impact report that tracks the effects the company's operations are having on the environment including sustainable agriculture practices, sourcing Fair Trade tea, and employing Fair Labor certified farms.  Numi Tea has a wide variety of teas to choose from, but the Grand Duke is partial to Earl Grey.  Hot.

Tabasco Sauce

If you're going to use a hot sauce, it would be challenging to find one more dedicated to fighting climate change than the McIlhenny Company's Tabasco Brand Pepper Sauce.

Their entire operation is located on a single island in southern Louisiana, and they've watched as the rising sea water has encroached upon the marshes where they grow the peppers used in their hot sauce and have taken drastic measures to make the harvesting, production, and distribution of Tabasco Sauce as sustainable as possible.

Crystal Geyser Water

Are single-use plastic water bottles bad?

Obviously, but sometimes, you don't have another option.  If you can, try to re-use a single bottle throughout the day and when finished, recycle it (or at the very least crush it into a tiny ball before throwing away).


In 2018, CG Roxane, the owner of the Crystal Geyser brand of bottled water introduced a revolutionary "1-cap" which promises to reduce plastic waste and has already been endorsed by the California Coastal Commission.

Grand Duke Travis has proclaimed this the best environmental innovation of the year and it has placed CG Roxane in the running for the 2018 Westarctica Prize.

The parent company of CG Roxane is Otsuka Pharmaceutical, a Japanese which is dedicated to environmentally-sustainable operations and adopted a strict environmental policy in 2013.

For all these reasons, His Royal Highness has made Crystal Geyser the official brand of bottled water used in the royal household.
