Our subscribers are very important to us here at the “Friend”.
And that’s why we have some important news!
This does a great job of keeping your magazine in pristine condition. But many readers have told me they are concerned that it comes at a cost to the environment. The plastic wrappers are recyclable — but only along with carrier bags at larger supermarkets.
We have taken these concerns seriously. And as a result, we have been looking closely at the situation for some time now.
We have all become more aware of the negative environmental impact of single-use plastic. But plastic can be a useful material. Finding a sustainable and reliable alternative is not always simple.
Sometimes the options that initially look more environmentally friendly come with their own problems . . .
However, I am delighted to say we have a solution.
From the August 15 issue of the weekly and Special 196, all copies posted to our subscribers will arrive in a new paper wrapper.
This has been sustainably sourced and is fully recyclable.
I hope you approve of the change!
