TEA AND SUSTAINABILITY

- We package our teabags in Natureflex plant-based polybags. They will  break down within 12 weeks in home compost or water.

-All of our cardboard packaging is FSC certified and fully recycleable.

WHAT ARE YOUR TEABAGS MADE FROM?

Open tab

Our teabags are made from a biodegradable plant starch called NeoSoilon. NeoSoilon® is a Non-GMO woven mesh filter made from PLA resin that derived from sugarcane. 

They will break down under certain environmental conditions and degrade most quickly (within 12 weeks) when disposed of through an industrial food waste system. We therefore strongly recommend that you find out from your local council if it offers a food waste recycling collection service in your area and if so, discard them using this.
