Filter bags are a popular method for preparing tea or herbal teas and are often used for their convenience and ease of use. However, disposable paper bags can have significant environmental impacts due to their production, use and disposal. A more sustainable alternative is to use a reusable cotton filter bag, which has several advantages for the environment and for the quality of your brew.

Disposable paper filter bags are often made from paper bleached with chlorine and may also contain plasticizers to maintain their shape. These sachets can be difficult to recycle and can end up in landfills, where they can take years to decompose. Additionally, paper tea bags may contain residue from chemicals used in their manufacture, which may have adverse health effects.

Reusable cotton filter bags are a more sustainable alternative to disposable paper bags. These sachets are made from organic cotton, which is grown without the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers. Organic cotton is also biodegradable and can be composted at the end of its lifespan.

Here are some of the benefits of using a reusable cotton filter bag:

  1. Waste Reduction: By using a reusable cotton tea bag, you can avoid the production of unnecessary waste generated by disposable paper tea bags. Reusable cotton bags can be washed and reused multiple times, reducing the amount of waste you produce.

  2. Better brew quality: Reusable cotton bags allow the beans to expand and brew more freely, which improves the quality of the brew. Unlike disposable paper bags which can clog the beans and affect their taste, reusable cotton bags allow the beans to express themselves fully.

  3. Durability: Reusable cotton bags are durable and can last for years if properly cared for. They are also easy to maintain and can be machine or hand washed.

  4. Economical: Although reusable cotton bags may cost a little more to purchase than disposable paper bags, they are economical in the long run because they can be used multiple times. Additionally, they help reduce waste management costs.

It is important to note that using reusable cotton filter bags does not require significant changes to the preparation of your BIBO. Cotton bags can also be filled with tea leaves or herbal blends just like disposable paper bags, and they can be used in the same way.

By adopting sustainable practices in our consumption of hot drinks, we can help reduce our environmental footprint. We can also support companies that produce reusable cotton tea bags and encourage the production of eco-friendly products in our daily lives.
