Teapigs Packaging

TEAPIGS Have recently invested in switching to a wonder-material called Natureflex. The geniuses at Futamura have figured out how to convert renewable wood pulp into airtight packaging, which means that the clear inner bag which keeps your delicious tea fresh is now compostable!

The Natureflex packs do look pretty similar, but simply use the good scrunch test to see whether your pack is compostable. If it holds its shape like the image above, you know it’s Natureflex. If it pings back, it’ll be plastic, so pop it in the recycling where possible. Natureflex also starts to turn slightly yellowish when you've been scrunching it for a while.

You’ll be very pleased to hear that our TEAPIGS tea temples have NEVER contained plastic. The temples and the string attached are made from cornstarch, a natural carbohydrate extracted from corn. The label on the end of the string is made from simple, old-fashioned paper. Even the ink on the label is vegetable-based, and everything is sealed with heat – so no glue! As a result, our tea temples are fully biodegradable.
