Hey Everyone! After a small hiatus of Mix It Up Monday, I am happy to say that it will be back along with Waste-Less Wednesdays. For those of you who are unfamiliar with MIUM, it is just a short blog post about something you could try out to increase your household and personal environmental sustainability! This week’s MIUM is reusable tea bags.
For those of you who are tea lovers, you are likely to be familiar with tea balls or baskets which are an excellent option of brewing loose leaf teas. The problem that I have with my tea ball is that it is too large to fit in my travel mug. Yes, I could probably buy a travel mug which had a basket steeper in it but I truly couldn’t fit one more mug in my cupboard. So, for those of you who are in my predicament, I present to you reusable tea bags!
These little guys allow you to use your favourite loose leaf tea in any vessel of your choice. Simply fill and use like a standard tea bag. Afterward, turn it inside out and empty the contents into your compost bucket, rinse and wash by hand, hang to dry!
So next time you stop in at your favourite bulk loose leaf tea provider, keep your eyes peeled for these little guys. Simple swaps. It is the way we at Cedar Coast like our sustainability!
Cheers – Heather
