    SUSTAINABILITY

    IT’S A (RECYCLABLE) WRAP

    Our Christmas gift wrap doesn’t just look good – we’re proud to say it’s eco-friendly, too. It’s produced by an innovative British company from sustainable FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified paper, and printed using water-based inks, with no plastic glitter, so it’s fully recyclable. We’re also trialling two types of shrink-wrap-free packaging for our gift wrap, to further reduce our plastic use.

    And this year, for the first time, all crackers sold at Waitrose and John Lewis will be filled with toys made from recyclable materials (such as metal and paper games instead of plastic) and decorated with techniques like embossing, rather than plastic glitter.
