Eco-friendly gift wrapping


The festive season is well on its way, with fairy lights and baubles beginning to adorn shop windows.

But with the impending Christmas season comes the gravest of challenges when it comes to gift wrapping. With the UK population reportedly throwing away 108 million rolls of wrapping paper every Christmas, the need to be eco-friendly and environmentally conscious with our gift wrapping is very important.

Transpack can help with this as we have a vast array of eco-friendly packaging solutions, so you can enjoy the festivities while being eco-conscious this Christmas.

Christmas eco-friendly packaging solutions

Striking a perfect balance between quality, function, appeal and environmental consciousness, here are some eco-friendly packaging solutions to inspire you this festive season.

Kraft wrapping paper

Kraft wrapping paper is a perfect alternative to traditional shiny Christmas wrapping paper, which can’t be recycled. It can create that traditional effect as well as a superior packaging experience.

If you’re looking to use Kraft wrapping paper but are asking yourself “is brown wrapping paper biodegradable?” the answer is yes. Available in a host of colour variations including natural, metallic silver and gold among others, our wrapping paper is recyclable, eco-friendly and made from partly recycled material. It also looks fantastic when teamed with paper raffia ribbon to create a totally eco-friendly parcel.

Tissue paper

Forget foil-wrapped products this year and try opting for festive tissue paper instead. Tissue paper offers an eco-friendly and appealing alternative to non-recyclable packaging and is available in a selection of designs.


Give your gift wrapping that extra sparkle by incorporating recyclable ribbon. From plain ribbon in festive colours to patterned designs, your gift wrapping will reach new heights with pretty details added to create stylish looks.

From traditional Royal Stewart Tartan to green polka snowflakes, each of our festive ribbons are 100 percent recyclable.

Cellophane wrap and eco wrap

Create superior finishes to gifts and Christmas hampers with recyclable cellophane and eco wrap. 100 percent recyclable, this versatile clear wrap is available in a host of designs, making it the perfect choice this Christmas.

Among the festive designs is the cellophane wrap with reindeer design, featuring festive reindeer and stars. A perfect, recyclable choice to make your products stand out.

Not only is this range of products recyclable, the wrap can be taped or tied with ribbon to create a perfect finish, is suitable for food use and can be cut to size to avoid wastage.
