The holiday season is upon us. And that means gift shopping for loved ones, family members, and friends. If you are looking to give a gift this Christmas season that has zero impact on the environment, then read on!

Every year in the UK 227,000 miles of wrapping paper is thrown away instead of recycled, that's the equivalent to 108 million rolls of wrapping paper going to landfill! Most wrapping paper is not recyclable due to it being foil or glitter decorated. The paper that is recyclable is also usually made from raw paper instead of recycled paper.
You can help cut down on the paper waste at Christmas time by buying sustainable recycled wrapping paper easily and widely recycled and made from recycled paper. You can also help by buying reusable gift bags that can be used time and time again for years to come.

At least 8.5 million plastic toys are thrown out each year in the UK alone! This is a shocking amount and the actual figure is said to be much higher than this figure. The majority of toys produced and gifted are made from non-recyclable plastic and once the child outgrows, gets bored or breaks them they are thrown into the bin without a second thought ending up in landfills and oceans.
We’ve put together a list of sustainable toys for children that can easily be recycled and won't be another piece of plastic polluting our planet.
