We are aware of the new McGill study and working with the Canadian Tea Association to investigate the claim. Read on for our statement.
Our sachets are a BPA free food grade nylon. We have been testing non-GMO biodegradable sugarcane fiber sachet material for about a year now, and have recently started introducing it to some of our product lines. We look forward to expanding the availability of the new material.
We also have some great options for enjoying tea without the sachet. We offer all of our teas as loose tea and encourage people to use durable filters and loose tea as much as possible to minimize packaging waste. The Forlife stainless steel strainer
is easy to use and easy to clean.
Our paper tea bags are compostable, oxygen bleached with a method that does not produce dioxins, there is no epichlorohydrin, PET, or PLA in our paper tea bags. We offer a variety of certified organic teas in them. The tea bags are fastened with a knot in the string, there is no glue or staple on the tea bag, and they are a great choice if you have any concerns about plastics.
