Did you know that the plastic wrapping that acts as an envelope for your home-delivered copy of The Shed is recyclable?
It should go in your recycle bin after you remove it and not in the rubbish. Here’s the official description from our mailing house, Ovato, of just what this plastic is.
“Our flow wrap solutions are LDPE ( Low and Linear low density polyethylene with an EPI additive ) which is acceptable for level 4 soft plastic recycling.
The EPI Additive is a Totally Degradable Plastic additive which helps manage the lifetime of products made from the most common plastics.
Due to these additives our flow wrap is degradable. Ovato is always on the lookout for new cost effective sustainable solutions for packaging.”
