Outdoor Swimmer magazine now delivered in compostable packaging

We are pleased to announce that Outdoor Swimmer magazine is now delivered to subscribers in compostable bags made out of potato and maize starch.

The compostable and fully sustainable polyfilm degrades naturally and can be disposed of in any compost heap, in a household garden waste bin, a household food waste bin, or you can use it to line your food waste bin.

As outdoor swimmers we see at first hand the effect plastic pollution has on our seas and waterways. Replacing the magazine’s polythene packaging is part of our commitment to reducing our plastic waste and marine pollution.

Stay up to date with The Dip, our free weekly outdoor swimming newsletter.
