Using loose tealeaves is a great way to avoid the plastic used in most tea bags. Tea infusers and reusable tea bags are great ways to use tealeaves for just one cup of tea instead of having to use a tea pot.


TOP TIP: Lots of zero waste shops sell plastic-free tea products. Find your nearest here and give them a call before shopping online.


TOP TIP: When washing your reusable tea bags it's more eco-friendly to wash at 30 degrees and wash more items in one go. Air drying is much greener than tumble drying too.
