#21 - Buying tea bags without extra wrapping

As I drink quite some tea, I buy boxes that merely contain tea bags: I find it unnecessary to put an extra wrapping around it. I guess that this bag is important for hygienic reasons in a public place for example at work, but not at home. And while writing this, I realize that it of course would be even better to buy tea without any bags. I’ll give that a try later.

Buying tea bags without extra wrapping reducing waste


  1. I enjoy the convenience of tea bags like most of us, especially when traveling. And as a next step to reduce waste even more at home, I use muslin tea bags and stainless steel tea balls with loose tea purchased in bulk and stored in reusable containers. We also use the tea leaves in our garden compost. Each small sustainable step makes a difference.
