Tranquil Tuesdays at CECP

Tranquil Tuesdays was honored to participate in the annual CECP Summit as part of the “Giving in China and India” Session.

As a key conference for corporate giving, CSR focuses on social enterprise engaged multinational companies, CECP “draws together and empowers senior executives of the world’s leading companies to achieve unprecedented progress on societal challenges.” 

CECP’s focus on combining business success with social engagement and giving is exactly in line with Tranquil Tuesdays’ social enterprise mission so we were so proud to be representing Chinese social enterprises at the CECP Summit!

Together with our retail partners the AsiaStore at Asia Society, we were invited to showcase Tranquil Tuesdays’ collections of teas and teaware during the session at CECP’s Summit on “Giving in China and India” and had a great time sharing our teas and our work in China with the attendees!
