What is your tea bag material made of?
Our pyramid teabags, including tag and string, are made from polylactic acid (PLA). The PLA material we use is derived from corn starch and does not contain any polypropylene. The tea bags are sealed using a transducer which applies pressure at an exact temperature - this cuts and seals each bag without the addition of any other materials. PLA products will generally take a number of months to degrade in a commercial composting facility. However, in a home composting facility the heat level required may not be achieved in the composting process.
