We’ve Gone Compostable

Living Magazines Compostable Wrap

You spoke – and we listened. The plastic that has been used to wrap our magazine for years has, after much research into compostable alternatives, been banished for good!

Like many other businesses, including the RSPB, we have switched to a new, more environmentally-friendly compostable wrap to bring your favourite, and only truly local, magazine straight to your door.

Made from potato starch, there are three ways you can dispose of it:

  1. Add it to your compost heap in your garden
  2. Throw it into the green recycling bin along with your garden waste
  3. Carefully remove the magazine and use the empty bag in your food waste caddy.

Please don’t put the wrap into your plastics recycling.

We’re very pleased with our new wrap, and we hope you are too.
