Home Compostable Packaging Matcha Yu Tea 
  • Being as eco-friendly as possible is so important to us which is why all of our tea comes in 100% Plastic Free Home Compostable Packaging.
  • The triple barrier packaging of our tea pouches are ideal for storing Matcha as it locks in freshness and protects it from exposure to air, heat and light that can 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.
  • Each film has been certified to the European and American commercial compostability standards (EN 13432 and ASTM4600) and either the European or Australian home compostable standards: OK Compost Home or AS5810.
  • You can put your used Econic® bags in your own home compost or worm farm, containing heat, water, oxygen, soil and micro-organisms.
  • Compost trials have shown that Econic® bags can break down into small fragments in as little as 16 weeks
  • Tip - cutting the bag down into smaller pieces before putting in your compost allows it to break down quicker. Our labels are also 100% home compostable so you do not need to remove them prior to composting.
