Hi David

That sounds like a good opportunity to reply to the Royal Mail suggesting they should use compostable material for all their wrappers in future!

Members should note BTW, that there is a big difference between “recyclable” and “compostable” wrappers. Many magazines & journals have trumpeted their change of wrapping material from ordinary plastic to “recyclable” plastic – but until this is recyclable with normal kerbside collections (which is currently not the case) it has relatively little value, as few people will bother doing it.  Genuinely compostable wrappers contain no plastic and can be added to your food-waste bin or your garden compost heap: one less piece of plastic to pollute the environment.
