Printing specialist introduces eco-friendly magazine wrap made from potato starch

Birmingham-based direct mail fulfilment and print management services provider bakergoodchild has introduced a compostable and eco-friendly magazine polywrap produced from potato starch from waste potatoes.

The biodegradable mailing wrapping material is being used by a number of bakergoodchild customers, including tour operator Audley Travel, to wrap its quarterly publication Audley Traveller magazine.

The decomposable magazine packaging wrapper carries no oil-based materials, plastics or harmful toxins.

The Bioplastic product has already been used as an alternative magazine wrapping material by various well know publications which have decided to switch wrapping as part of a phase out of single use plastics.

bakergoodchild sales director Adam Stafford: said: “Our values focus on providing a service that makes a difference in improving customer experience and exploring initiatives that help create awareness. In line with this, we have introduced a potato starch based polywrap, which is 100% biodegradable and provides a premium look and feel. As a brand we are fully behind improving the environment and are working with partners and customers to achieve various goals, which has resulted in a good uptake in using the potato starch based polywrap.”

Located in Birmingham UK, bakergoodchild is a privately-owned company and provides print, mail, and postage solutions throughout the UK and internationally.
