Packaging

The Guardian Goes Bioplastics

The Guardian will be the first national newspaper to switch to biodegradable wrapping.

The Saturday edition of the paper contains a large number of supplements which are currently packaged in polythene.

The Weekend magazine, the Guide, Feast, and Review will instead be wrapped in a material based on potato starch.

The change will increase production costs for the Guardian but is part of the newspaper’s plan to reduce plastic waste.
