Do away with plastic wrappings for magazines

There has been a lot of buzz lately on reducing the use of plastic in society.

Another area to address is the plastic wrapping used for magazines.

I often receive publications in the mail that are in a clear plastic wrapping that serves only to display the address details, which are printed on an A4-sized paper.

Is it really necessary? More effort is needed to go green.

I suggest doing away with the plastic wrapping, and using a smaller sticker to display address details.

Huge volumes of plastic and paper can be reduced with such a move.

Most organisations have an e-publication option. Eventually, we should eliminate hardcopy publications altogether.
