- Take an offcut of the paper and scrunch it up into a ball in the palm of your hand, closing your fingers tightly around it.
- Open your palm and fingers and allow the paper to unfurl
- If it remains in a ball – good news it can be recycled*
TIP – Not every council accepts all kinds of plastic-free wrapping paper but the majority DO accept brown paper based wrap – what Hansels’ range is made from.
Our vibrant range of shades of papers are made from brown paper too! It’s just been coloured to give it its unique hue.
*There’s an exception to every rule. The vast majority of glitter and shiny coatings are not recyclable so even if the paper scrunches, the printing probably means it is no longer recyclable – sorry!
All Hansel gift wrap is recyclable so you don’t have to worry when buying our products 😊
