Lidl brews up change to make own-label tea bags fully compostable

Lidl is to make all of its own-brand tea bags fully compostable as it looks to help customers make more sustainable shopping choices.

The move means that customers will be able to dispose of the tea bags in food or green waste bins.

The material used for the bags is a plant-based plastic, polylactic acid that Lidl says not only ensures the composability of the tea bags but also maintains quality and flavour.  The new bags will land in-store over the coming months, while existing stock gradually sells through.

Shyam Unarket, head of responsible sourcing and ethical trade at Lidl GB, said: “Those buying tea bags from Lidl are supporting our efforts to reduce single-use plastic going to landfill. We understand that even a few small changes to our products can benefit our customers, while helping us improve our impact on the planet – one cup at a time.”

The move forms part of Lidl’s ongoing efforts to reduce its own-label plastic packaging by 40% by the end of 2025. The retailer has recently announced that it will be transitioning its milk range to clear caps.
