Make the Nice List this Christmas by Choosing Sustainable Gift Wrapping
The festive season is meant for spending time with loved ones, which can include the exchanging of gifts. Amidst the excitement, we often neglect to consider what happens to all that gift wrap and packaging after we’re through with it. According to the GWP Group, a UK packaging company, consumers in the UK use approximately 227,000 miles of wrapping paper each year, with over 83km2 heading directly to the bin. Many local authorities don’t accept wrapping paper for recycling due to the additives included, such as dye, lamination, and glitter. This abundance of gift wrapping can’t be fixed in place without loads of non recyclable sticky tape - 40 million rolls to be exact. Luckily, having a sustainable Christmas morning is easier to achieve than you might think.
