Tea for Trees

Our “Tea for Trees” campaign creates a sustainable model that restores one of our most precious resources while offsetting the paper used in our products. We’ve partnered with the National Forest Foundation to support their campaign to plant 50 million trees in our National Forests.

Water-Based Aqueous Coating

The smooth, glossy finish on our box comes from Soft Touch®, an aqueous coating with several environmental benefits. Aqueous coatings are water-based, which means they create minimal amounts of environmentally-impactful material during creation, and are also easily recycled.

Soy-Based Ink

While most traditional printing methods rely on a petroleum-based ink, our printing is done instead with soy-based ink. This option is completely biodegradable, and is therefore much kinder to the environment.

Bleach-Free Tea Bags

The tea bags we use are made from 100% bleach-free paper. You can read more about our bleach free tea bags on this page.

Recycled, Eco-Friendly Paper

Every box in our tea line has been made using cost-effective and environmentally friendly recycled paper. Much of this material is made from post-consumer recycled paper, making new use of paper and cardboard discarded after consumer use. This allows us to limit trash buildup in landfills as well as the need for new paper materials, making it the most eco-friendly option available to us as a company. Naturally, all of our boxes are 100% recyclable.
