Green Tip

With the holidays just around the corner, have you started thinking about presents? If you're thinking about presents then you're probably thinking about wrapping paper too... am I right?⁣

Before you head to the shops though (or the online shops!), take a moment to think about what you're buying and how eco-friendly it is. ⁣

We all know wrapping paper can be shiny, sparkly, fun or beautiful, but did you know that the majority of it isn't even recyclable? One statistic from Canada showed that within 2017 540,000 tonnes of wrapping paper and gift bags were sent to landfill during the holiday seasons. 540,000 tonnes... and that's just Canada.⁣

So, here's the Green Tip for today. Switch your unrecyclable wrapping paper to recyclable wrapping paper! The best and most recyclable wrapping paper is brown paper, and with the right ribbon or string, it can look beautiful. If you want something more exciting though, there are plenty of online businesses that sell recyclable wrapping paper with beautiful prints within the UK. It might take a bit longer to find, but it's worth it 💚🌿⁣
