Recycle your wrapping paper!

 

Wrapping paper is a difficult material to recycle as it contains thin fibres, is often dyed, laminated and glittery or has tape attached. For this reason, not all areas will be able to accept it for recycling this year.

With this in mind, why not check out these fantastic reusable and recyclable alternatives?
