Thread: Plastic!

  1. #1

    Default Plastic!

    Ok not strictly content related but more on how that content is delivered....ie the magazine in the plastic wrapping.

    With all the talk of plastic polluting the oceans etc, are there any plans for replacing the plastic wrap with something else? Perhaps a good old envelope that can be recycled more easily?

    Would love to hear some feedback from Robert or the EOS Magazine team.

    One of the problems I foresee is that not everyone has a letterbox. I would far sooner read my copy of of EOS Magazine than walk through a pile of paper mâché.

    However, my understanding is that Polythene and Polyethylene are easily recyclable, so shouldn't it be down to us to dispose of the outer sleeve responsibly?

    For those that don't have a letterbox, how much of their other mail turns to paper mache?

    I get magazines from other sources that no longer arrive in plastic. And whilst some of us live in areas where plastic wrapping can be recycled, many don't.

    Also, I'd rather see a reduction in the production of all plastics than let the producers wash their hands if it and put all of the responsibility of the consumer.

    Just had my National Trust magazine delivered and the polythene outer sleeve has been replaced by one made from potatoe starch which can be composted.
