NEMI ensures that its teas are made in a way that is better for people, animals and wildlife, and respects the natural environment. It believes that everyone in the UK, regardless of whether they are refugees or economic migrants, should get the same chance as all citizens for a decent quality of life and the opportunity to contribute to society and its development.
Often the people who grow and pick tea don’t earn enough to feed their families, let alone plan for the future. As a fair trade organisation, NEMI buys its tea on fair terms. Its farmers and workers benefit from improved working conditions, training in how to improve the way they farm and manage their environment, and the opportunity to improve healthcare and education in their communities.
All the pyramid tea bags are made from a fully biodegradable Polylactic Acid (PLA) mesh filter derived from 100% non-GMO sugarcane. The bags are joined at the seams ultrasonically, without the use of heat. Even the string and labels are both attached using ultrasound so no glue is needed.
Packed in a material called NatureFlex™, a cellulose based film from renewable wood pulp proven to be suitable for home composting. It is also marine degradable. Comes beautifully presented in a recyclable card tube that also makes a great pen pot!
Tube measures approximately 15cm high x 7.5cm diameter. Contains 15 pyramid tea bags.
