This is a controversial one and as a Yorkshire based company we completely understand…but hear us out!
Tea bags are often filled with tiny micro plastics which aren’t good for anyone. These tea bags will then typically be used and discarded into your bin bag which means even if your teabag was compostable, it will still be sat in landfill unable to decompose!
The way forward? Loose leaf tea! Your cup of tea tastes just the same but uses up less waste…win win! To use loose leaf tea, simply grab a tea strainer and pop your tea leaves inside and once your tea is brewed, simply empty your tea leaves into your compost bin.
Don’t worry, most large tea companies offer a loose leaf tea alternative, our favourite is Yorkshire Tea of course!
