We've got a mission to reduce the 50,000 trees that are chopped down each year for wrapping paper, are you in?
Did you know?
Consumers in the UK use 227,000 miles of Gift Wrap - most of this cannot be recycled.
DEFRA (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) estimates that at least 50,000 trees are cut down each year to produce wrapping paper and gift bags!
It is estimated that 40 Million Rolls of sticky tape are used. Most of this will go straight to landfill.
Shocking right?! We'd like to change those facts.
Perfect for those looking to make a difference without compromising how great the presents look under the tree!
PlanetWrapIt gift wrap is made using post consumer recycled materials, water based inks and better still, can be re-used, recycled or composted unlike typical wrapping paper.
All of the coloured kraft paper we use for PlanetWrapIt gift wrap is made using toxin free water based inks which can be effectively recycled alongside your house hold paper waste.
Free from solvent based inks, glitter, foil and other non-recyclable contaminants.
Free from plastic packaging.
Fully recyclable with household paper waste.
The ink cartridges we use are made with recycled ocean plastic and are further recyclable.
We advise that you use paper tape when wrapping your gifts as plastic based rolls contaminate the recycling process. Paper which is soiled with food or grease should also not be recycled.
For every 15 pieces of gift wrap we sell on our website, we plant a tree. We also plant a tree for each wholesale order placed with us and we offset the carbon emissions produced from every delivery we make #planet50k.
