Reduce, reuse, recycle
With pressure mounting on retailers and consumers to cut down on our use of plastic, I would like to know what BBC Wildlife intends to do to cut down its consumption? I look forward to receiving the magazine in the post each month but it’s a real shame that it’s always packed inside plastic. I hope the magazine seeks to move away from this unnecessary waste sooner rather than later. Geraint Matthews, Pontypridd
BBC Wildlife editor Sheena Harvey replies: This is something that is being explored at the moment. Our plastic subscription bags are already recyclable in the carrier bags bin at supermarkets but our publishing company is currently looking at other alternatives, including compostable wrappers. We hope to bring you news soon.
