We currently throw away over 227,000 miles of wrapping paper at Christmas, did you know that’s enough to go around the Earth’s equator nine times? That statistic blows my mind.
You can find a large range of eco-friendly wrapping paper to use this Christmas to wrap up presents you have for loved ones. Be kinder to the planet by using wrapping paper that is 100% recyclable or reusable such as wrapping paper made out of fabrics! Just remember, that if this is covered in Sellotape or if the paper contains foil or glitter it becomes non-recyclable.
If you are in Brighton & Hove, you can purchase eco-friendly recycled craft paper from Kite Packaging in the wonderful Harriet's of Hove, the perfect to wrap your presents up this year – Harriet's also sell paper tape and recycled twine from Eco Living Uk allowing your gift wrapping to be fully recyclable! Another place to get beautiful sustainable gift-wrapping paper is from Curlicue UK – the designs they have created capture the Christmas spirit perfectly! The wrapping paper is printed on uncoated, 100% recycled paper with vegetable-based ink!
And finally, if it’s gift tags you’re after the wonderful Loop Loop sell plantable gift tags, so once the recipient has read your message, they can plant it in their garden to grow a batch of wildflowers!
