1. 100 per cent compostable wrap
Readers tend to respond positively to the potato starch-based wrap alternative (pictured below). Its increasing popularity means many suppliers are now able to offer the compostable option at the same competitive rate as traditional polywrap. Its translucent appearance allows the reader to glimpse the contents while maintaining that special, exciting feeling of unwrapping and unveiling your treasured publication.
The milky appearance of some of the compostable wraps on the market is, unfortunately, still causing challenges with Royal Mail mailmark discounts. However, there are some more transparent options out there which overcome this issue; you just need to shop around.
If your local authority accepts compostable wrap in its waste stream, you can use it to line your food bin or pop it in your home compost. Just remember not to put it in your recycling bin!
