One Earth® Filter Media
BIODEGRADABLE TEA BAG FILTER MATERIAL MANUFACTURER
One Earth® filter media has full taste neutrality, is biodegradable, compostable, and translucent. The filter media shapes easily into pyramid, round or single chamber compostable tea bags.
A Great Cup of Tea in Less Time
Optimized Fabric Breath-ability
Optimized fabric breath-ability provides an immediate water contact and diffusion with the tea leaves, without any “ballooning effect.” Infusion time is optimized.
Translucence & Full Taste Neutrality
Our filter media allows for enhanced visibility of the tea and other flavored components. Filter becomes clear during infusion.
One Earth® fabrics minimize tea flavor retention, unlike paper fabric, which absorbs and retains over five times its weight in water.
Easy to Process
One Earth® fabrics work on standard high-speed packaging equipment at reduced temperatures for energy savings. Seal on most standard heat sealing machines with no modifications. Seal on ultrasonic welding machines without major adjustments.
One Earth® does not use a chemical treatment during the manufacturing process. All components meet FDA requirements for Food and Beverage. One Earth® is allergy and gluten free.
Biodegradable Issue and Solution
Paper tea bags are made of 15 to 35% of non-biodegradable residual plastics and chemical binders. Pyramid tea bags are made of Nylon fabric which is also non-biodegradable.
The One Earth® product line is certified compostable in 14-21 days. View the evolution of disintegration of our tea filter fabric below.
