NFYFC has changed the wrapping on its membership magazine Ten26 to potato starch to improve its green footprint and to show the organisation’s commitment to the #ProtectYourFuture initiative.

The 32-page membership magazine is sent out to more than 20,000 members, three times a year, and the spring issue has been wrapped for the first time in potato starch, making it fully biodegradable.

The new wrapping is compostable and recyclable in council garden bins or home composts.

The starch is sourced from the food industry’s waste stock and is processed to release the starch before being manufactured into granules. The paper Ten26 is printed on is also FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) approved.

Lucy Stowell, the Events and Marketing Steering Group Chairman, from Norfolk FYFC said: “It’s great news that Ten26 will now always be sent out to members in biodegradable packaging. In the spring issue we are sharing information about our Protect Your Future campaign so it’s even more important that this message is being delivered in an environmentally friendly way.”
