The Times has launched a sustainable hub alongside removing all of its single-use plastic magazine wrapping

The brand describes the new hub as a place for Times journalists to report on engaging stories, research, and studies from around the world to help readers make better-informed decisions.

The news of the launch came yesterday, on Earth Day (April 22nd) and follows The Times’ Clean Air for All campaign which called for legally binding air pollution limits in 2019 based on World Health Organisation recommendations.

A coroner has called for a change in law after nine-year-old Ella Adoo-Kissi-Debrah died in 2013 and became the first person in the UK to have air pollution listed as the cause of death on their death certificate.

John Witherow, editor of The Times comments: “Times readers are concerned and interested in climate change and our new Times Earth digital channel will showcase our climate and environment coverage.

“The Times and The Sunday Times, with unrivalled reputations for in-depth reporting and analysis, are keen to help highlight and inform our readers on one of the great challenges facing the planet.”

Times Earth will be published across print, audio, newsletters and social platforms and will run alongside event series with ‘Climate Sessions’ and a Climate Summit later this year.

The launch coincides with the removal of The Times’ entire use of single-use plastic magazine wrapping. This weekend, the final plastic will be removed totalling 15-tonnes and bringing the title’s total amount of single-use plastic removed to 250 tonnes. In its place, The Times will now use recyclable paper branding.
