Sustainability & Environment
PLASTIC? NOT FOR US
Sustainability: The quality of not being harmful to the environment or depleting natural resources, and thereby supporting long-term ecological balance.
The story behind our commitment: As a young family, we spent our summers sailing around the Greek Islands, Croatia and the Caribbean and would often be privileged to share our joy of the salty sea and sunshine with pods of smiling dolphins and other aquatic life. Increasingly, we began to see rising levels of plastic and other rubbish in the sea and it created an awareness in the ecological balance of our planet.

Minimising our business impact is part of every decision we make at Twist Teas and, while we are all about bringing you the best possible tasting tea, we do this in a way that is as kind to our environment as possible. We believe that if everyone shares our ethos, our children and their children will be able to feel the same connection with our natural world.
