Reusable Tea Brew Bags
Single-use tea bags are increasingly being made with plastic, and even those made of paper often have plastic glues. This releases micro-plastics, first into the cup of tea, and then down the drain into our water systems. Research shows that steeping a single silky plastic tea bag at brewing temperature releases about 11.6 billion micro-plastics and 3.1 billion nano-plastics (150 times smaller than a hair and may be even small enough to permeate human cells). Another perspective: the amount of plastic found in tea bags is greater than what we absorb from other common items that harbor micro-plastic. For example, a single-use plastic bottle has 44 micro-plastic particles, and a serving of mussels has 90. The World Wide Fund for Nature estimates that the average person ingests about 5 grams of plastic a week, roughly the size of a credit card. Say goodbye to nylon and PET tea bags and all the micro-plastics they create.
