Tea for Trees
With our "Tea for Trees" campaign we're taking action to make our philosophy of using environmentally conscious products and practices a reality. By teaming up with National Forest Foundation’s “Trees for US” we offset the use of paper in our tea bags by planting 5,000 new trees each year.
Water-Based Aqueous Coating
The smooth, glossy finish on our box comes from Soft Touch®, an aqueous coating with several environmental benefits. Aqueous coatings are water-based, which means they create minimal amounts of environmentally-impactful material during creation, and are also easily recycled.
While most traditional printing methods rely on a petroleum-based ink, our printing is done instead with soy-based ink. This option is completely biodegradable, and is therefore much kinder to the environment.
Bleach-Free Tea Bags
The tea bags we use are made from 100% bleach-free paper, and are also fully biodegradable, adding another environmentally-friendly aspect to our overall products. You can read more about our bleach free tea bags on this page.
Recycled, Eco-Friendly Paper
Every box in our tea line has been made using cost-effective and environmentally friendly recycled paper. Much of this material is made from post-consumer recycled paper, making new use of paper and cardboard discarded after consumer use. This allows us to limit trash buildup in landfills as well as the need for new paper materials, making it the most eco-friendly option available to us as a company. Naturally, all of our boxes are 100% recyclable.
