Our ambition at Twist Teas is to continually reduce our impact on the environment, and we are pleased to be taking another step forward by changing our tissue paper and ribbon – used for gift wrapping – to compostable materials.
Our gift-wrapped Twist Teas are popular with socially responsible shoppers: either personalised presents for loved ones; corporate gifts for employees and customers; or delightful surprises nestled in luxury gift hampers.
Gift wrapping is a central tenet of gift giving, creating a special and very personal experience for the recipient. At Twist Teas we put a lot of care into our gift wrapping because we know how much our customers enjoy receiving a handwritten note, pulling the bow of their ribbon and hearing the rustle of tissue paper as they reveal their favourite tea…and now they can do it in the knowledge that there is no harm to our planet.
The lovely tissue paper and ribbon – once reused – can be put into your council food waste for composting. An improvement by us to make your gift giving and receiving an even more pleasurable experience.
We’ve reduced our carbon footprint so far by making all our packaging recyclable and compostable.
We’re planning to be on Santa’s ‘environmental’ list next year as we further reduce our packaging waste and use paper tape instead of sellotape for gift wrapping during 2021.
Did you know that in ancient China, 2,000 years ago, tea leaves and other precious materials were wrapped in paper to protect them? In fact, we used paper for wrapping before we used it for writing!
