Home Compostable Packaging

  • Being as eco-friendly as possible is so important to us which is why all of our tea comes in Econic Certified Home Compostable Packaging.
  • It is perfect for storing matcha as it protects it from exposure to air, heat and light that make Matcha appear dull and bitter.
  • Econic® packaging is made from three compostable films derived from sustainably-produced wood pulp and GM-free corn sources.
  • The three films are laminated together to provide the barrier properties required to lock in the taste and freshness of coffee and dry foods.
  • You can put your used Econic® bags in your own home compost or worm farm, containing heat, water, oxygen, soil and micro-organisms.
  • They can also be disposed of in a commercial composting facility if you have one in your area. 
  • Compost trials have shown that Econic® bags can break down into small fragments in as little as 15 weeks.
