Barry's tea: Make teabags 100% compostable

Make teabags 100% compostable

Why is this important?

Barry's teabags are not compostable, they contain 20% polypropylene. This really disappoints me as a long-term loyal Barry's tea drinker. Other teabag manufacturers are able to construct fully compostable teabags, so why can't Barry's?

Too often the onus is on the consumer to protect the environment. I believe that corporations also need to step up and do their part. We don't need anymore unnecessary plastics in the world.

This petition asks Barry's to change their teabags to make them compostable. A small change that can make a big difference!

PG Tips have recently made changes to the way they make teabags. Why not Barry's

Reasons for signing

  • I want Barry's to get with the programme. It's not on, in this day and age. And well they know it...
  • I'VE stopped using teabags, instead using loose tea with a strainer, until I'm sure there is no plastic in teabags.
  • Time to say stop!
