We're doing our best to honor Mother Earth and have committed to sourcing organic spices, tea directly from India, and mindfully packaging our products. Our beautiful tins are reusable. The cellophane pouch is USDA and FDA approved for edible items and is made from cellulose, a material that is derived from a sustainable forest, not plastic, and is 100% recyclable and compostable. The little spoon is made of sustainable bamboo and is reusable. Our boxes and filler are all recyclable. We'll keep working to do our part.
