Plastic-Free Tea Bags
Awareness of the excessive presence of plastic in our everyday lives has never been so heightened. None more so than when it was revealed by several major tea brands that their teabags contained plastic despite generic advice that teabags are compostable.
Following these revelations, a number of large brands and supermarket chains have announced that they will be removing plastic from their teabags. They have stated that they will achieve this by switching to a material that is “made from corn starch and is fully biodegradable”.
