Yes... but it has a lower fibre content so it is more difficult to recycle, and yields less recycled product. (If it is decorated with glitter or foil, it is not recyclable.)
There we go.
Good question. Here's why.
I want to make it easy to cut out pointless plastic for gift wrapping so..
1. I've sourced great eco-friendly products with value, maximum environmental gain and sustainability in mind...and put them all on one site!
2. Products are 'naked' or have only the minimum necessary packaging.
3. Orders are sent to you using my own eco-friendly products and of course, PLASTIC FREE!
4. And finally, I’m talking to manufacturers, suppliers and shops about making a larger quantity of sustainable products available as standard. Plastic is everywhere. Reducing our reliance on it is a gradual process but what are we waiting for?
I am really pleased with my paper tapes. They are an alternative to sellotape for present wrapping, from a great little website (UK based) I came across recently called ‘naturally wrapt’. 🎁 They are paper based washi/ masking tapes. They come packaged plastic free and shipping is very reasonable. Also, they are so pretty!
NO...OOOO! That was the moment I realised that plastic sticky tape was a single-use plastic.
Even the joyful act of giving had turned into an eco-UN-friendly act!
So I decided to re-think my wrapping habits and stick plastic tape where it belongs... the back of the cupboard to be used for desperate 'plastic requiring emergencies' only! (I still have not had one of those yet!)
I thought switching to sustainable, plastic free gift wrapping would be comparatively easy but eco-friendly products were scattered across the web and delivery charges mounted....
So here we are. A simple, affordable, selection of eco-friendly wrapping materials - all in one place …. and with one delivery charge.
Plastic tape? You know where to stick it.
