Numi Organic Tea’s award-winning sustainable packaging uses the most innovative materials available to minimize impact on the environment. We use recyclable, cardboard outer packaging made of 85% post-consumer waste and printed with soy-based inks. We do not use plastic shrink-wrap, and we use natural, biodegradable filter-paper tea bags rather than nylon or GMO-origin tea sachets. Most elements of our packaging can be recycled or composted!
The bottom panel of each box of Numi Organic Teas features an Eco-Audit that reflects the waste reduced due to our eco-responsible efforts. This audit is performed by the Environmental Defense Fund
We work with a small-scale bamboo supplier to manufacture our Numi Organic Tea gift boxes, tea chests and merchandising packages. Bamboo is an organic, earth-friendly material known for its fast re-growth, high strength, and ease to work with, and it is one of the planet's most untapped and renewable plant resources. Our bamboo packaging is hand-produced by a small group of handicraft workers, primarily women, who can help support their families and improve their livelihoods through this project.
