Single-use wrapping paper makes the silly season positively absurd
A single roll of wrapping paper takes 600 watts of energy and 60 liters of water to produce. That’s like vacuuming your house for an hour while drinking 1000 bottles of beer..! .. a bit much for a product that only stays on a gift for a couple of days.
And what about all the ribbons and fancy
“But, everything is recyclable” we hear you say. You’re not wrong. But guess what? There’s an extra 15% of ‘stuff’ to be recycled in Melbourne over the Christmas period. That’s a very big pile of paper and card headed to energy-hungry recycling plants which, with a bit of effort, is pretty much avoidable
Don’t even get us started with clothes, fabrics, and materials that go straight to landfill. The facts are horrific. Fast fashion makes a frightful mess.
To wrap it up (excuse the pun!), Wrappaporium will raise money to support local Goodsmiths micro-social enterprises, to do more good. Because these are the people that are truly working hard to create real impact!
If waste research gets you excited, drop us a line..we’d be happy to have a rant 🙂
