Tea plantations have been known to have a direct impact on habitat and the wider environment, while the oil-based plastics used to seal most tea bags today mean that they’re not fully recyclable, largely ending up in landfill.
We feel very passionate about having fully recyclable packaging and sustainable sources of tea. The truth is that the global tea industry can be harmful if more companies do not take their environmental responsibilities more seriously. There are many examples of companies claiming to be fully recyclable while having tin foil based wrapping and plastic based tea bags.
