We are rather excited to announce the release
of a new range of biodegradable eco bags!
This first run is super limited and
we expect the bags to sell out rather quick!
NOW SOLD OUT : (
We love being in the tea industry and supporting organic growers from New Zealand and abroad, but if theres one nagging voice in the back of our head, its the one shaming us from packing all this wonderful tea in thick, multi layered, energy intensive plastic bags which take hundreds of years to break down.
We've all heard of the Great Pacific garbage patch, the floating gyre of plastic debris in the Pacific Ocean, estimated be somewhere between .5 and 8% the size of the entire Pacific Ocean (That's possibly larger than continental United States!).
Every person, and every business in the world needs to do something about this problem. Today we're taking our first step by introducing an eco options to every tea in our range.
The bags are manufactured here in New Zealand (Hamilton to be precise) and believed to be the first packaging of its kind in the world. The bags have been internationally certified to EN13432 for composting and biodegradability meaning that they can completely biodegrade in as little as 14 weeks in a compost environment
