I always think how to reduce plastic use in day to day life and up to an extend, I am doing it. When reading about how plastics are polluting earth, I used to think what can we do from our part to reduce it. Compassionatea is my baby step towards plastic-free product.
This particular tea blend is made of CTC dust tea with cinnamon powder and clove powder and is named Metabolizer owing to its health benefits of increasing metabolism, acting upon breaking down fats, reducing blood sugar, helping to stay active in relaxed mode.
Along with my tea, I would like to spread the idea of plastic-free packaging of products among people. In India, we still need to work a lot towards making our country eco-friendly. From people to people, home to home, city to city, state to state, country to country and then in our earth, we can reduce plastic use if we think and act wisely. I won’t say to make earth completely plastic free as I learned it is nearly impossible until we get a cheaply available sustainable material to replace plastic. What we can do is reduce plastics in our daily lives as much as we can and avoid single use plastics completely.
While I was searching for packing material for this tea blend and formulating some value-added products from tea, I faced with issues of increased cost of eco-friendly packing materials. And, I started with this particular tea blend only as of now to see the market response towards my tea and also to the packing. It may not be catchy to the eyes of some tea lovers. I would like to say them humbly that it is a small step towards caring our environment, supporting handmade products and selling my tea 🙂
Frankly, for people doing microbusiness and small scale business, making their products plastic free is a real challenge depending on what product they sell, but I won’t say it is impossible. It is possible if we start accepting eco-friendly packing. It is possible if eco-friendly packing is available at nominal costs and both in small and large quantities. It is possible if we can pay a little more for eco-friendly products (those who can afford). It is possible if we can make our own eco-friendly packing materials.
Just a humble request to well-established companies in food and cosmetic industry: Please support eco-friendly and handmade packing. If need for such product is increased, production of such will be increased and people start developing positive attitude towards use of such products and method of packing.
Dear ones, I need your blessings, prayers and support to move forward with my tea business in eco-friendly way 😊🙏
