Did you know that nearly all tea bags have a plastic lining on them? So it does not degrade in compost or in soil! So why not get some loose leaf tea and enjoy with our plastic-free tea strainer. Zero Waste plastic-free tea strainer is perfect for having loose leaf tea without feeling guilty about throwing plastic-lined tea bags in the bin.

Fine mesh filters even the smallest tea leaves, giving you mess-free tea
Easy to clean, dishwasher safe, and won’t rust
Made of food-grade stainless steel that keeps your drink free from the odor and taste of metal
Over 100 million tea bags are thrown away every single day in the UK alone! And these tea bags contain plastic lining. Which means that after disposing them, they will not decompose properly and will contaminate the soil with the toxic as the plastic lining will break down into micro plastic. And hey! When we pour hot water onto the tea bags, it releases millions of micro plastics we digest as we drink. YUCK!
With our reusable tea strainer, it's so easy to avoid tea bags! Making brewing tea a beautiful simple process where no plastic is involved.
Through the introduction of our reusable tea strainer, we hope that people switch away from the tea bags and into loose leaf tea.
If tea stains occur, simply use baking soda dissolved in warm water then softy scrub the tea strainer.
After use, wash and wipe tea strainer to keep it in a great condition.
This tea strainer should hopefully last over 20 years. When it does come to it’s end of life, simply put it in your metal recycling or upcycle the item using your own creativity.
Paper box can be recycled or composted.
Zero Waste Club
Feeling frustrated and let-down by the extent of the damage we have done to our environment, two friends - Rishi and Pawan - went in search of answers. While the markets are changing slowly, they noticed that many products that are eco-friendly are given a luxury label. They also found that many products sold under the “eco” label tend to stretch the definition of sustainability. Thus they decided to start their own journey to produce truly sustainable, beautifully designed, ethical, and vegan essentials at affordable prices.
And here we are!
We want to do more than just make beautiful eco-friendly products. So we are going to make the most transparent, ethical, sustainable goods company on earth. Opening up our supply chain fully for everyone to see. To show that there is a nicer way to do business. Hopefully this will inspire other businesses to do the same.
