How to recycle your magazine packaging

 Worried about the effect of plastic on our environment? So are we.

At Bauer Media, we strongly believe we need to reduce, reuse and recycle the plastics we use to help stem the global tide of plastic pollution, and we fully support the government’s proposed mandatory phase-out of single-use plastic shopping bags in New Zealand.

We are currently investigating a sustainable alternative to the protective wrap our magazines are delivered in. In the meantime, we encourage you to recycle this packaging, to help continue its life cycle and ensure it doesn’t end up in landfill, or worse, the ocean.

Our magazine wrap can be recycled through Love NZ Soft Plastic Recycling bins, located in shops and supermarkets around New Zealand. The plastic that is collected in these bins is repurposed into items such as park benches and fitness circuits for playgrounds.

Find your nearest bin here and start collecting your magazine wrap, plastic bags, chip packets, bread bags and more to drop off when you next do the shopping. Just make sure your bags are empty, clean and dry.
