Sustainable Christmas wrapping paper we are loving this year

You may not know this, but most wrapping paper on the market isn’t recyclable and can play a massive detrimental role to our planet each Christmas. This is because most wrapping paper designs are laminated in a thin plastic layer to give that glossy appearance whilst also often containing glitter, foil or even certain types of ink that prevent it from being able to go into your recycling bin at home. 

It is estimated that 227,000 miles of wrapping paper is dumped into landfill each year…that is equivalent to almost 5,045 trips around Yorkshire!

Keep on reading to find out some of our favourite pieces of sustainable wrapping paper this Christmas so that you can have beautifully wrapped presents and do your piece to help the environment…win win!
