Printed with water based inks | Made in the UK | 100% recyclable
Most wrapping paper is terrible for the environment. It is mostly imported from China and is often covered in foil, glitter and other non-recyclable coatings. Every Christmas we bin 108 million rolls of wrapping paper – most of which will go straight to landfill because it is not recyclable. And that’s just at Christmas. It’s not even that good for wrapping. How often have you had the paper rip when you’re trying to wrap a gift?
A lot of eco-minded people in the UK have started using plain brown paper for their wrapping. That’s great and has definitely started to reduce waste, but it is a little bit plain and doesn’t really reflect the effort you have taken choosing your gift. So, we decided to take it a step further.
We sourced high quality, FSC certified Kraft paper. We found printers in the UK who can print on this paper with water or vegetable based inks. We then created some classic and unique designs and had them printed.
The result is a beautiful, premium quality wrapping paper that is 100% recyclable and will not rip when you use it.
But what about the plastic tape? Well, we’ve got that covered too. Just scroll down the page to find our recyclable paper ‘sellotape’ and paper ‘parcel tape’.
Our Gift Wrap is printed in Scotland and The South West. It will be wrapped in recyclable paper and, just like our Cards, will be ‘naked’ (no cellophane or plastic wrapping). We use our own paper parcel tape to wrap it.
You can see, and order, our wrapping paper below. If these patterns prove popular then we have several more designs in the pipeline.
