Here's the thing…we were sent some teabags (not telling you who from!!...that would be rude) but this is how it went:
First we had to take off the cellophane outer wrapping...then there was a box...inside the box was a cellophane packet...inside the cellophane packet were 20 packets...each packet was individually wrapped in plastic (aarggghh!)...we took the plastic off and there was an envelope and inside the envelope was a tea bag...eventually...phew!!! At last a cup of tea!...
...and a bin full of waste wrapping stuff.
Completely pointless and unnecessary!
So what is this obsession we have with packaging??? Why does everything have to be wrapped and tagged and bound and zipped and branded and...well...packaged!!
So...we have decided to try to keep things simple. You can buy our tea to brew at home if you like and we can give you a tin or a kraft (recyclable) pouch.
To make things even better if you bring your tin back for a refill we will give you 10% off your tea!....you can’t say fairer than that!
We do something similar with our takeaway hot drinks too. If you buy one of our travel or keep cups and bring this in-store we will fill it with hot tea or coffee and again give you a 10% discount for being good and green...see...very simple and very fair.
