Earth to Earth

Our plant-based tea wrappers are made from renewable materials designed to leave no trace.

Full Circle

Numi’s compostable, plant-based tea wrappers eliminate plastic waste, reduce our reliance on fossil fuels, and open up pathways to a plastic-free future. We can’t ask consumers to be responsible for their waste if we’re not responsible for ours.

“This is revolutionary. If all the packaging in the grocery store could actually come from the earth and go back to the earth, it would make such an impact on the plastics crisis.”

—Reem Hassani, Co-Founder and Chief Brand Officer of Numi

How Does Composting Help Fight Climate Change?

Composting programs divert organic material like food scraps away from landfills, where they would otherwise emit methane, a greenhouse gas much more potent than carbon dioxide. Food waste is responsible for roughly 8 percent of global emissions.² Compost used in agriculture or gardening enriches soil, pulls carbon out of the atmosphere and is more resilient to climate change.

Advocating for Local Compost

Currently, only around 5% of U.S. households have access to municipal composting. Here are some steps  you can take to advocate for compost in your local jurisdiction! If you don’t have access to municipal composting, visit our blog for easy at-home composting solutions. 

The Future of Packaging

A project 10 years in the making with the OSC Packaging Collaborative, Numi’s plant-based tea wrapper was 2022 winner of the Flexible Packaging Achievement  Silver Award for Sustainability.
