DIY Wrapping Paper: How To Make Your Own This Christmas
So much paper is wasted at Christmas each year as it’s eagerly torn off and put straight into the bin – recycling if we’re lucky. And remember anything with glitter, foil or with sellotape on it can't be recycled.
Reduce the waste this year by creating your own DIY wrapping paper using recycled or scrap paper.
Save newsprint throughout December to reuse and wrap your gifts or buy a roll recycled parcel paper and print it yourself.
