You’d probably be surprised to learn that most tea bags contain up to 25% plastic.
A pot of tea… and some plastic... anyone?
Plastic is almost everywhere you look. It’s in our oceans, our environment, and even in our food. When you look at a tea bag, plastic usually isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. Yet about a quarter of each tea bag (from most brands) is comprised of this substance.
So due to the plastic content, conventional tea bags cannot completely decompose. This makes them a bad option for compost material and the environment… not to mention your body!
But don't worry! The HippieStraw is here once again to solve that problem.
