Nylon tea bags are not the most sustainable choice as most nylon is practically non-biodegradable and cannot be composted.

However, the long-term degradation time for nylon is shorter than many other forms of plastic, on the order of 30-40 years.

Nylon tends to persist in the environment for a fairly long time, but not indefinitely.

 

There are a few special forms of nylon that are biodegradable, but these forms are usually labeled as biodegradable nylon.

 When you do not have information establishing otherwise, it is safest to assume that most nylon is of the non-biodegradable form.

Because there is no clear legal definition of biodegradability, some companies may label nylon as biodegradable even if it is not biodegradable under all circumstances, and even if it is not backyard compostable. For this reason, if you wish to compost nylon, check with a certifying agency like BPI and avoid non-certified products.

 

There are additional environmental concerns with nylon beyond that of its breaking down. The production of nylon has some negative impacts on the environment.

Most nylon nowadays is produced by a process that generates significant amounts of nitrous oxide, which functions as a greenhouse gas and also depletes ozone.
