We all want less plastic in the environment but unfortunately a lot of tea bags contain a small amount of polypropylene plastic. This may surprise some of you but until recently it has been an essential ingredient to help the tea bag paper seal together.

Clipper’s tea bags are sealed with a completely natural, non-GM bio-material made from plant cellulose, known as PLA.
They are completely free of polypropylene – the oil-based plastic that is so damaging to the environment. The material we use is entirely natural, industrially compostable and much more environmentally friendly.
The biomaterial that Clipper use is considered plastic-free according to the definition by environmental group A Plastic Planet.
