"This is the only 100% post-consumer waste tea packaging in the industry and that’s huge.”

Mountain Rose Herbs, one of the nation’s largest bulk suppliers of organic herbal products, has debuted new sustainable tea packaging made entirely of garbage materials. After two years of research and development, the company has produced a unique box made from 100% recycled newspaper and compostable non-GMO plant cellulose for their line of certified organic loose-leaf teas. This is the only certified organic tea line on the market packaged with 100% post-consumer waste materials.
When Mountain Rose Herbs set out to design the new tea line, their focus turned to finding an environmentally conscious packaging option that was recycled, recyclable, biodegradable, and reusable. “When we discovered this recycled newspaper board, we knew it was the perfect fit for our commitment to sustainability. According to our research, this is the only 100% post-consumer waste tea packaging in the industry and that’s huge,” says Shawn Donnille, Vice President at Mountain Rose Herbs.
The newly designed packaging features full color photos of the company’s organic teas with multi-layered embossing to create a vibrant 3-demensional graphic effect using environmentally friendly soy inks. Customers will be able to recycle, compost, or reuse the new box. “The unique aesthetic of this tea box is just striking on store shelves, but our customers really respond to the functionality and absolute sustainability of the package. The fact that the boxes are beautiful is just an added bonus,” says Donnille.
The new retail-ready line includes a variety of 64 certified organic loose-leaf green, black, red, and herbal tea blends in 4oz boxes. For additional information, please call 800-879-3337 or visit http://www.montainroseherbs.com.
