Plastic in tea bags

© Manuela Ewers

More and more tea bags are partially or fully made of plastic. This is not only a health risc, but an environmental issue.
To be 100% sure that your not drinking plastic with your tea you should switch to loose tea.

Flustix certifies plastic-free products

 

“FLUSTIX is a seal which certifies plastic-free products. Only if both packaging and product are tested free of plastic will our independent license-partner award the FLUSTIX seal.

 

Our Goal
We want to reduce plastic waste and encourage industries to replace plastic with alternatives. By marking plastic-free products with the FLUSTIX seal, every customer can make a conscious and sustainable buying-decision. […]

 

When a manufacturer wants to be certified by FLUSTIX, its produce undergoes a strict testing process. Products, meaning content and packaging, are being tested for plastic contamination by FLUSTIX. In a second step, the product is sent to the independent, unbiased laboratory Wessling GmbH which tests the product for its exact plastic content.

 

Every product on the German, Austrian and Swiss markets can be tested.”
