If you haven’t already started your Christmas wrapping, why not think about doing something new this year.
Did you know that 40 million rolls of sticky tape are used to wrap presents each year in the UK? And around 50,000 trees are cut down to make the wrapping paper?
For an eco-friendlier Christmas that’s low-cost too, how about trying something a bit different:
- Wrapping with material, newspaper or rustic brown paper
Reusing delivery boxes to hide your gifts in
Using natural greenery or materials to decorate your gift instead of a plastic bow
- Using recyclable paper tape instead of plastic
If you’re feeling really creative, there are loads of tips online about how you can wrap presents without using any tape.
