Let's Talk Packaging...
We have always been fired up around everything sustainable. I was talking about many aspects of eating organic in my last blog post, and these topics really do lead from one to another. So here we are, the next topic to come up is the necessity and value of recycling!
Being good to our bodies by consuming pure and organic when possible is so important to us at Taka Turmeric. But equally important to us is looking after our beautiful planet.
And being a company that provides products that are good for you, we found it was a necessity that we make our products as eco friendly as we possibly could. So rather than focusing on cutting costs and increasing profits we can sleep at night knowing that what we are doing is good for you and good for our planet too :).
So look out for a really deep dive into this topic, and for now, we just wanted to show you how to dispose of everything you take into your home when you get your Taka Turmeric Tea.
What Does 'Recycling' Actually Mean?
“Recycling is the process of converting waste materials into new materials and objects. The recyclability of a material depends on its ability to reacquire the properties it had in its virgin or original state. It is an alternative to "conventional" waste disposal that can save material and help lower greenhouse gas emissions. Recycling can prevent the waste of potentially useful materials and reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, thereby reducing: energy usage, air pollution (from incineration), and water pollution (from landfilling).”

Taka Tea Packaging Is 100% Recyclable,
From Top To Tail!
Taka Tea Bags
Our tea bag filter paper is as pure as it can be! You may notice it is not a pure white like many teabags you have seen before. This is because we have chosen to use an unbleached filter paper which is its natural colour rather than bleached pure white.
Our tea bags are unbleached, staple-free and stitched together with a 100% organic, non-GMO cotton string, instead of heat-sealed using glues & plastic. Once used remove the paper tag and then place them into your compost bin as they are fully compostable.
Taka Tea Tags and Strings
The tags we use on each tea bag are a unique colour, so that you always know which blend you are enjoying. Our bright and cheerful tags are made from FSC® card, so these can be popped into your paper recycling bin.
Taka Tea Bag Envelopes
After four years of research and development, we are now able to use a tea envelope made with MaxiBio paper that is fully airtight and can go in your paper recycling bin.
Our FSC® certified paper envelopes include a very thin coating of plastic that is free from BPA and PVC but is a necessity to protect the high quality organic herbs and spices in our tea blends.
Taka Turmeric Tea Herbs
Our tea boxes are made from FSC® certified card, and printed using vegetable-based inks. Once used, you can put our tea boxes in your paper recycling bin.
The herbs we use in our tea blends are 100% organic - I mentioned my recent post on everything you want to know about going organic - this means that once you have brewed all the delicious golden healthiness out of them, you can pop the tea bag with organic string into your food waste bin.

Taka Tea Final Product Production
The sublime packaging of our final products are thanks to a highly intelligent Italian made machine which packs the tea from blend to box.
This amazing tea packing machine takes:
• The Taka organic tea blend
• Filter paper
• Tea Tag
• Bag String
• Colour-coded Envelopes
When all the above are placed in their spots… like magic… out pops a perfect box of Taka Turmeric Tea
Oh and by the way - our teas are all sugar-free, dairy-free, added flavouring free, caffeine-free (besides the Masala Chai which has a small amount of naturally occurring caffeine), and suitable for vegetarians and vegans, and for those who are halal and kosher.
Our goal is to make sure you get all the health benefits of an all-natural drink like ours, and to leave both the planet AND the body in the best condition we possibly can!
