This Tea Company Has Gone Totally Plastic-Free

By Desirée Kaplan

Americans drank more than 84 billion cups of tea last year, according to the Tea Association of the USA. Unfortunately for the planet, the lion's share of that tea was sold with some form of plastic packaging to keep the product fresh. Just about all plastic packaging from tea ends up in landfills. Which is why a company called teapigs has done away with plastic altogether. 

Teapigs first came on the scene in the UK back in 2006 when founders Nick and Louise wanted to launch a higher quality tea company. They focused on the tea’s taste; and, once perfected, began searching for a way to make sustainable packaging for the delicious tea being created.
