Calendar publisher’s eco-packaging chimes with the Society’s mission.
Carousel Calendars is both safeguarding and celebrating the planet with the packaging and signings for its 2020 calendar portfolio.
Among the titles that are bound to pique the consumer’s interest is Carousel Calendar’s Sea Change calendar that has been created in collaboration with the Marine Conservation Society, a leading marine charity dedicated to protecting the seas around the UK through the creation of well-managed protected areas.
Forming part of Carousel Calendars’ own commitments to reducing plastic waste – following trials of a new packaging idea to replace the outer shrinkwrap for an easily-recyclable cardboard envelope – the Sea Change title was a clear choice for this new approach. It joins several other calendars in the Carousel range to be adopting this packaging.
The Sea Change calendar promotes the work that the Marine Conservation Society does with pages packed with information including statistics that highlight the plight, quotes from famous environmentalists, scientists and advisors, and tips and tasks that provide clear and easy to follow advice on how to reduce reliance on plastics and non-recyclable materials.
In addition, last weekend (Saturday August 17) saw the official launch of Carousel’s Bird Photographer of the Year Calendar at Rutland Water’s Bird Fair.
Martin Rees-Davies, head of licensing for Carousel Calendars, said: “We are delighted to be working with BPOTY. The amazing quality of photographs that are being submitted have created a stunning product that is sure to be a huge success and appreciated by bird lovers worldwide.”
