Plastic in Tea Bags:
As far back as 2018, well before the current controversy, Clipper made tea bags that did not contain any plastic. Clipper was the world's first tea company to have all tea bags be plastic-free as well as being unbleached, biodegrable and made with non-genetically modified plant based material.
In the past, a lot of tea makers used polypropylene, an oil-based plastic, to seal the tea bags. Actually, polypropylene can be called bio-degradable. But, Clipper's plastic-free tea bags do not contain any polypropylene.
To make their tea bags, Clipper uses a non-genetically modified biological material called polylactic acid. Also known as PLA or bio-plastic, it is made from plants.
A Clipper spokesperson told us, "if you want to make a choice that is better for the planet, then make a switch to plant-based biodegrable tea bags, sealed with PLA."
