Unilever announces switch to 100% biodegradable PG Tips tea bags
PG tips tea bags will be made with new plant-based material that is 100% renewable and biodegradable.
PG tips are working to make all tea bags from 100% plant based material by the end of the year.
PG tips pyramid bags are currently made mostly with paper, with a small amount of polypropylene used to seal the tea bag, a method used widely across the industry.
Closer to home, an online petition calls on Barry’s Tea to make its teabags 100% compostable. Watch this space!
