If you subscribe to English Heritage and The National Trust annual membership, you’ll receive their annual pack with the handbook and car stickers, something of a hefty pack, particularly with all the sales leaflets inside.

Well, I have to say congrats to English Heritage, they’re undoubtedly thinking green, because what I thought was a plastic wrapper holding everything together, was actually made of 100% compostable potato starch – see images.

This is fantastic to see in practice, and the way they tell you on the packaging that “I’m plastic-free” is great encouragement to people, demonstrating that there are products out there that don’t have to be made from plastic.

Hurray for English Heritage!!!
