Many teabags are retrieved from beaches they are made with plastic and end up in the oceans. People toss them as they think (like we did) that they are a natural, harmless product. Check out the below video and discover this is definitely not the case! Thanks to Sea Shepard and BBC Two for helping to bring this to light.
Luckily you can get a stainless steel tea strainer ball for as little as $3.99, so we can easily convert to tealeaves which taste as good if not better than teabags.
