A New Year!

The same Waterlooville.

One annoying thing about Christmas is that it is virtually impossible to buy paper gift wrap in the popular stores. Recycle For Hampshire and Project Integra won't take the current plastic wrap for recycling. This situation is exactly the opposite to what we know it should be. We know we need to recycle more, but shops and manufacturers do not help us achieve this.

The ridiculous thing is that for many, many decades, paper wrap was perfectly satisfactory, so there is absolutely no excuse.

If you have to buy gift wrap, try getting paper wrap and if you can't find any, complain in the shops that are selling the plastic stuff.

Natural Collection has a selection of eco friendly gift wraps. I think as long as people assess a product mainly based on price then we will always have a waste and consumption problem.
