Gummed Paper Tape, we love it! Who needs plastic for shipping or parcels? Not us.
It's a perfect environmentally friendly paper tape for securing parcels, packages and your orders!
It is biodegradable, recyclable, tamper-proof (as the tape can only be torn open) and strong, It sticking brilliantly to kraft paper packages. It needs to be moistened and adds strength to packaging when it dries.
If you fancy giving it a go, try the 15m roll or go straight for the 200m roll. Handy, hand held machines that moisten tape are available from other sources.
Lengths: 15m - £2.45 200m - £10.95
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. Orders are sent to you using my own eco-friendly products and of course, PLASTIC FREE!
3. Education is key so I promote and share good eco-news (See Twitter) to help build an army of positive and creative, informed plastic users/non-users for the future.
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 for desperate emergencies only! And then, purely for my own amusement, I renamed it EMERGENCY tape!
Switching to plastic free gift wrapping is comparatively easy but eco-friendly products were scattered across the web and delivery charges mounted.
So here we are. A simple, affordable, plastic free selection of wrapping materials - all in one place. With one delivery charge.
Plastic tape - you know where to stick it!
