Virgin fibre – why?
The packaging for our boxes of tea has been made from virgin fibre since 2006 and is completely recyclable. They have been sporting the FSC seal since 2011. We consciously opted for wooden virgin fibre. Consequently, our products should be kept from traces of mineral oil as much as possible.
The current situation is that recycled paper in Germany is heavily loaded with mineral oil due to printing practices. We need to break this cycle. That is why we also opted for vegetable oil-based inks – 100% mineral oil-free. At the same time, this is also an important contribution to the protection of finite resources.
