Recently I came across a video that reminded me of the Discovery Channel’s ‘How It’s Made’ series. I was obsessed with that shit. Learning how frozen pizzas are mass produced? Sick. How air bags are tested? Super useful. Sorry, sidetracking. What I wanted to talk to you about is the video below, showing how TEA BAGS are made (so exciting, right?). While I knew some of these guys were made of 100% plastic, including the little string, (see image above, damn those little nasties), I didn’t realise that the tea bags that LOOK like paper, are actually a mixture of paper and plastic meaning they aren’t biodegradable! Conclusion, ALL tea bags contain plastic. That’s nuts. And I wonder what it means for your health.. As far as I know, mixing plastic with hot beverages isn’t the best idea! In this blog post I wanted to show you some neat ways to drink your tea plastic free.
I’ve rewritten this post a silly amount of times. My first version was written somewhere in October 2016. Around the time when I bought my plane tickets to Bangkok. I wanted to share with you the story of Sunshine Sister and what was in store for it. Somehow, my scarcity mentality got the better of me and I kept thinking.. What if somebody steals my idea? And runs off with it and actually does a better job? Shouldn’t I keep this thing a secret until everything is ready so I can relaunch my blog and webshop with a bang and impress the shit out of everyone??
