With an aim to deal with plastic pollution, Seven Spring, a premium tea brand from Gujarat, has introduced 100% compostable tea bag sachets with zero plastic and aluminum foils. This packaging, claimed to be India’s first, is environment-friendly and focuses to cut back on waste, zero plastic consumption, and carbon emissions.
After a research for around nine months, the Seven Spring team came up with the 100% compostable tea bag sachets that are said to be completely plant-based and can dissolve in water or mud.
Sejal Purohit, Founder of Seven Spring said, “Going environment-friendly or sustainable is no longer an option. We have reached a point where absurdly large amounts of single-use plastic are being used. Every company needs to make effort to reduce the use of single-use plastics. All of Seven Spring’s product range comes with sustainable and eco-friendly packaging and we are going to follow this in the future too.”
As of now, Seven Spring has introduced the compostable packaging in its economical range, which is available on Amazon, Big Basket and company’s website. These are also available in the B2B segment – in hotels that the brand has tied up with.
“We aim to change our entire packaging into the compostable one,” adds Sejal.
Recently, Seven Spring partnered with Accor Hotels to supply its premium range of teas to over 21 brand hotels across the country. Seven Spring was launched in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, in 2020.
The brand, which brews teas from leaves sourced throughout the world, has grown considerably over the past two years, both in terms of varieties and reach. Seven Spring also offers 50 variants of premium teas – tea bags and loose tea leaves.
