TO­DAY, I re­ceived both my

Am­a­teur Gar­den­ing and Na­tional Trust mag­a­zines. The lat­ter was in a bag made from potato starch, 100% biodegrad­able and so could go straight into my com­post bin. I re­mem­ber a men­tion of AG mag­a­zine no longer be­ing mailed in a sin­gle-use plas­tic bag and won­dered when you in­tended to change the wrap­per? Fol­low­ing the Na­tional Trust’s ex­am­ple would be very wel­come, as I’m sure most gar­den­ers want to do what’s best for the en­vi­ron­ment, and avoid­ing sin­gle-use plas­tic is be­com­ing in­creas­ingly high on the pri­or­ity list.

Wendy says Our subs bags are not sin­gle use and can be re­cy­cled. We are tri­alling a potato starch wrap­per for one is­sue (Jan­uary 26) to test how well it will com­post. Please join us in the test!

The 26 Jan edi­tion will be posted to sub­scribers in a potato starch wrap­per – please com­post the bag and tell us how you get on!
