IdentiTea’s subscription tea box service solves the problem of how to promote local tea farms across the U.S. while also keeping customers safe at home. The project also looked at how to package tea in a sustainable way.
When taking the materials into consideration I chose metal for the tea tins as they can be reused. Plus, if the owner decided to discard the tins, 95% of the metal could be recycled. The materials for the cardboard box would be obtained from a location where loggers apply sustainable forest management practices.
