Our fully biodegradable magazine wrapper

Spring 2019 magazine composite covers image

We've switched the wrapping on our members' Magazine to potato starch, as part of a wide-ranging phase out of single use plastics.

The National Trust Magazine, sent out by Advanced Direct Mail, was wrapped for the first time in compostable BIOPLAST® 300 for our summer 2018 issue.

BIOPLAST® 300 uses waste potatoes left out of the food chain in Eastern and Northern Europe, and is processed to release the starch and manufactured into granules.

The wrap is ‘OK compost HOME’ certified as fully home compostable. This means it can be easily disposed of with food waste, garden compost or in green council recycling bins and is also completely biodegradable.

This is one step in our commitment to:

  • Ensuring our shops are free of single use plastic by 2022. 
  • Removing all single use plastic bottles in cafés by 2022.
  • Investigating the alternatives for single use plastics in our plant nurseries and plant sales areas.
