Sustainable Packaging (No Strings Attached)

Our Amazing Tea Bag
Our natural fiber, chlorine-free tea bags don't contain starch or gluten and are biodegradable and compostable – making them better for you and for our planet. Best of all, because our unique pillow-style tea bag doesn't need a string, tag, staple or individual wrapper, we save 3.5 million pounds of waste from entering landfills every year!
 
Our Recycled Packaging
We think our boxes are just as important as the goodness they hold, so we've always created beautiful packaging adorned with commissioned works of art and thoughtful, inspiring words. But with a tea box that uses 100% recycled paperboard, including 35% post-consumer waste, and can be recycled again when empty, the beauty of our boxes isn't limited to appearances.
 
Our Retail Displays
We put as much thought into the retail displays in your store as we put into our boxes and tea bags. Our natural brown craft paper displays are made with 100% recycled paperboard, including at least 90% post-consumer content, and our display headers are made from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Mixed Sources Certified material. We also encourage our retailers to re-use or recycle our displays again when the tea is gone! 
 
Our Ongoing Commitment to Recycling
We're continuing our efforts to make our production facility as earth-friendly as our packaging. We recycle more than 700,000 pounds of material every year, including paperboard, shrink wrap, scrap metal, pallets and other materials. In fact, we've reduced the amount of waste we send to landfills by more than 60% in just the past few years! 
 
Our Building
From our increasing use of wind-generated electricity to power our factory, to expanded recycling and efficiency efforts in our office, to using compostable and biodegradable items in our tour center, café and tea shop, we're extending our commitment to the environment to every corner of our building.
