Why Do You Need to Switch from Plastic to Compost Teacups with Loose Green Tea Leaves Blog Post-Cover

The effects of climate change and global warming are starting to be evident with extreme temperatures all year round. The summers are hotter than ever, and winters colder, breaking all historical records. Climate change is a global issue, but if we play our role responsibly, we can make the earth a better place to live.

By making little changes to your daily life, you can positively impact your health and the environment. One of the best ways to get started is to switch from plastic to TeaVoila’s innovative compost teacups with loose green tea leaves. Here are the top benefits of making this switch:

Environmental Benefits

Environmental Benefits

Lower Landfills and Carbon Footprints

Plastic teacups are the norm in most offices, homes, and cafeterias. With conventional plastic reaching more than 333 million tonnes, plastic production globally now poses detrimental effects. However, if you opt for compost teacups today, your choice can positively impact saving the planet. It may be a subtle step but helpful in the long run.

Compost teacups are biodegradable. This means that they don’t harm the environment as they can be easily decomposed by the bacteria when disposed of, thereby lowering landfills and your carbon footprints.

Improve Soil’s Water and Nutrient Retention

The compost ability of these cups makes them rich humic material that can further improve the soil’s nutrient and water retention while helping plants grow healthier with a lower need for pesticides and chemical fertilizers.

Lower Pollution

Lower Pollution

As biodegradable teacups can break back down into non-toxic components, they don’t release dangerous chemical leachate, which otherwise can poison water, while off-gassing can pollute the air. Did you know that compost products produce 68% fewer greenhouse gasses as compared to petroleum-based plastic cups? This is a significant environmental benefit and an opportunity to conserve the earth.


Increase Fuel Efficiency

Another great benefit of switching to compost teacups is that it takes 65% less energy than required to produce petroleum-based plastic cups. Thus, it makes biodegradable cups a better and more energy-efficient choice.

Biodegradable cups are made from renewable resources instead of oil. Research reveals that nearly 200,000 barrels of oil are used daily in the US to manufacture plastic products alone. Imagine how much energy you can save by replacing plastic cups with compost teacups.

Health Benefits

Apart from environmental benefits, it has tons of health benefits. TeaVoila’s teacups are no ordinary cups. These are designed with innovation at its best. These cups come with loose green tea leaves sealed with a planter fiber filter.

Touted as one of the healthiest beverages, green tea is great for:

  • Improved brain functioning such as mood, vigilance, memory and reaction time

  • Weight loss

  • Protecting the body against cancer

  • Lowering the risk of heart disease

Green tea contains catechin called epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) that are natural antioxidants that prevent cell damage and lower free radical formation in the body.

Besides this, loose tea leaves are not brewed in a teabag. This means that when you steep it, the leaves absorb water and expand as they infuse, thereby allowing water to flow and extracting a variety of vitamins, flavors, minerals and aromas from the leave. Therefore, you get a flavorful cup that tastes so much better than a teabag. Also, by eliminating tea bags from your daily life, imagine how much waste you can reduce to landfills everyday and in a year?

Our cups are biodegradable and deployed with PLA lining, which prevents the tea from seeping. Each cup features high-quality loose leaf tea with a planter fiber filter; thus, you can enjoy a high-quality cup of tea with convenience on the go while reducing the amount of waste going to landfills.
