Quick Tips

Tea Made Greener

As I’m touring in Japan & drinking ample green tea, I thought this post on one of our favorite beverages appropriate…

Are you a daily tea drinker?  Switch to loose tea in a reusable tea ball or through a strainer so you don’t waste the bag, string or tag.  Loose tea is the most enviro-friendly option, especially if you buy in bulk.

  1. Hi Nic,
    The obvious but simple: use your own reusable mug instead of to-go cups from coffee chains. Americans drink 4 million cups of coffee per day (that can add up to a lot of cups!)

    Another quick tip is to try and buy fair trade java. (Starbucks is actually the largest North American purchaser of Fair Trade coffee.)

    Thanks for the question!
    Beth
