As you know, we are super passionate about the planet! So, we have been brainstorming for a while and decided on creating a 100% eco-friendly tea starter pack!
The Mother Earth TEA-co Box contains:
- 150g tin of loose leaf tea (of your choice)
- Tea Infuser Basket
- An E-coffee Cup (of your choice)
- A Bamboo Straw
Making small changes to your daily routine can make a big difference when it comes to reducing waste, so what can you do to switch to zero waste tea brewing?!
Some important facts:
We make, on average, 165 million cups of tea every day in the UK, predominantly using tea bags which contain plastic (unless you are using ours, which are plastic free). That's 40 tonnes of plastic waste we could save going into landfill if we switched to tea bags like ours, or even better - loose leaf tea (which brews a tastier cuppa anyway! Win win!).
Equally, we work our way through 2.5 billion single-use cups and 8.5 billion straws a year, through our takeaway drinks habit. If you can get into the habit of carrying your bamboo straw & eco cup (both made from bamboo fibre, on of the most sustainable materials around & fully compostable!) you alone could save 100 tonnes of waste a year!
Did you know...
- All of our takeaway, sample & consumable packaging is compostable & goes into our food waste bins in each store.
- All of our 'plastic' looking packaging is actually made from plant-based, biodegradable material.
- Our tea bags are 100% natural & plastic-free, and always have been!
- Buy a bamboo eco cup from us & get your first cup free, plus 10% off takeaway drinks for life!
- Bring your own reusable cup or straw into one of our stores we will give you 10% off your drink!
- Get 150g or more loose leaf tea from us & get a free tea tin to reuse & refill for life! Bring an empty tin or container into our stores and we will fill it with loose leaf tea, again giving you 10% off.
