It's estimated that Brits will use 227,000 miles of wrapping paper this year, with over 83km2 ending up in our bins. That’s a lot of waste.
And even the most well-intentioned of us may be unaware that the wrap we put in recycling isn’t actually recyclable if it contains plastic, dye, foil, glitter or leftover sticky tape. It’s been said that you can check whether paper is plastic coated or not by scrunching it. If it stays scrunched, it’s probably fine to recycle, but if it pops back, it’s covered in plastic.
Thankfully, there are plenty of ways to make presents look pretty and cut down on waste.
