About Unbottle Your Tea
Salada Tea launched the “Unbottle Your Tea” campaign in September 2008 to encourage Americans to choose freshly brewed tea as a healthier, more cost effective and environmentally friendly alternative to bottled tea. Compared to bottled tea, freshly brewed tea made with tea bags contains 95 percent more healthy antioxidants, is less expensive and can help reduce the 135 million beverage containers wasted each year. The campaign also supports the Bottle Recycling Climate Protection Act, which would require all beverage containers – including bottled tea and water – to have a five-cent deposit. The “Unbottle Your Tea” website features health, environmental and cost-saving statistics, links to related articles, social networking, green activism, recipes and giveaways.
