If Greg Edwards wants his tea to rot, he can do two things:
1. Purchase only loose tea. It is great for the compost. (Note that Murchie’s provides seniors a 10 per cent discount on the first Wednesday of each month.)
2. Buy tea bags that are not nylon. Nylon, being an oil product, will not decompose. By the way, Tetley’s sells many tea bags that can be composted. And, most important, their bags do not yet come encased in non-recyclable packaging. The plastic packets surrounding many tea brands are not recyclable. They go to the landfill.
