Did you know that the majority of wrapping paper is not recyclable?
Millions of wrapping paper rolls are thrown into the bin every single year! Avoid using glossy, wrapped and metallic paper if you want to care about the environment this Christmas!
- USE BROWN PAPER
Brown paper can be bought at your local post office which can be used to wrap presents in.
Why not decorate the paper with festive stamps or draw your own festive imagery?
Need a gift tag? Simple, write on the brown paper!
Need sellotape? Use Natural twine or a ribbon.

- REUSE NEWSPAPER OR MAGAZINES
Re-use old magazines and newspapers to wrap your presents! Select the most colourful pages to bring colour to your wrapped gifts!
- FABRIC GIFTWRAP
Use old tablecloths and tea towels to wrap your Christmas gifts! Secure the present by tying a knot with a ribbon or twine. If you don’t have any spare fabric to use at home we suggest using Etsy! Here is a video on how to wrap your Christmas presents in fabric! http://bit.ly/HowToGiftWrapFabric
