Use of Plastic
I use biodegradable postage bags (paper is impractical here due to post being exposed to the elements)! I also have compostable bags in the workshop for people to put their scarves in to protect them from the weather and boat travel. I use tissue paper and wool or cotton for wrapping.
Natural fibres do not produce micro-fragments of plastic or synthetic polymers which can get into the water course (and ultimately the food chain) from washing.
I am a supporter of Plastic Free Scilly and a Trustee of the Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust
