We all know that the world is facing a host of environmental issues today. One of the main culprits for these issues is the use of packaging materials for various consumer goods.When packaging isn’t made with eco-friendly materials, it collects in landfills and emits toxic pollutants that affect human health and the environment.
Aside from packaging, many people don’t know that tea bags are often composed of polypropylene. This chemical is used to help the tea bag to seal shut, but when put into hot water the plastic begins to break down and toxins are released into the tea. Consistently drinking this runs the risk of causing health issues. Also, due to their plastic content, conventional tea bags cannot completely decompose. This makes them a bad option for compost material and the environment.
You could prevent tons of unnecessary waste from polluting our planet by switching to a quality loose leaf tea that comes in zero-waste packaging. All of our Teas & Tress products come in biodegradable packaging, which means that the packaging is composed of materials that can be broken down and then be returned to the earth. Materials can be classified as biodegradable if they can break down within a year. This way we can do our part to assist in cutting down packaging waste, therefore to minimize climate change and promote sustainability!
