All our ingredients, packaging, and sourcing are completely free of GMOs - Genetically Modified Organisms. The EU and many other countries have banned or restricted the use of GMOs because their long-term safety and viability, as well as the dangers they pose to farming, wildlife, and the environment. In the current economic climate, it can be difficult to know which products contain GMOs due to poor labeling regulations. At TeaWithinMe, all of our products are 100% non-GMO.
All of our products are plastic-free, without question. We use loose leaf packs by NatureFlex, a plant-based alternative to plastic. NatureFlex uses films based on cellulose, one of the most naturally abundant organic materials, derived from renewable wood pulp that is sustainably harvested from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) managed forests. We are 100% committed to finding and adopting biodegradable alternatives to plastic. Thus, we have reduced our purchasing of plastic where and when possible, and try to reuse any plastics already in our inventory, contributing to a healthier planet.
All of our packaging is 100% recyclable and biodegradable. We know that non-biodegradable waste is causing environment and ecological problems across the entire globe (and in some ways is contributing to climate change). Pollution and the contamination of water, land, and habitats is of great concern to us here at TeaWithinMe. In a more socially conscious effort to reduce our contribution to this ongoing global issue, we’ve ensured our packaging and loose leaf teas are biodegradable (we don’t use bags, strings, or tags in our tea products). Our boxes are made from 100% recyclable paper card, which is fully biodegradable and compostable.
Our healthy herbal tea tonics are all loose leaf, meaning that we do not add tea bags or strings to our product(s). Even though we have made it a priority to source biodegradable materials for our tea pyramid bags, we fully understand the stance against tea bags and unnecessary packaging. With this in mind, we offer all our blends in loose leaf format.
