The environment

Together with the Rainforest Alliance, we're working to ensure the protection of local wildlife and their habitats in and around our tea fields.

What you can do. Compost!

At LYONS we want to spread the word that you can compost your LYONS teabags. You can do this by adding them to your brown bin collection or why not try composting at home. It's simple and provides rich free compost for your garden. Here's some tips from the Master Blender.

Chop up waste


Add sprinkles of water to speed up the process


Layer green waste on top of brown waste


Place in the sun & turn regularly
