Beware of plastic in tea bags

  • Some tea bags release over 11 billion microparticles each (McGill University Montreal 2019) – Disposal: put in landfill waste bin
  • A larger number contain PLA – a plant based plastic – Disposal: put in food bin for industrial composting
  • A few tea bags are totally plastic free – Disposal: put in home composting
