Listen to Curlicue – Sustainable Gift Wrap – Audio Description
Curlicue makes beautiful eco-friendly sustainable gift wraps and accessories.
All their products are plastic-free, vegan, made in the UK from 100% recycled paper & fully recyclable in household recycling.
They have beautiful, exclusive bespoke designs, created by a diverse and eclectic mix of independent artists and illustrators.
Traditional gift wrap products are made with pollutants and plastics that cannot be recycled – like glitter and foiling, which ultimately harm the earth.
Even brown paper can be from unsustainable sources and is often imported so have a high carbon footprint.
This is what makes them different, they were created as a solution to this; gift wrap that is holistically sustainable, from what they use to where it’s made, and printed with beautiful bespoke designs.
Using 100% recycled paper to make our paper products, their paper remains plastic-free – no plastic coating, foiling or glitter – so it can be easily recycled in household recycling.
Traditional gift wrap is often coated in plastic to make it stronger because they use poor quality paper fibre and once the plastic is bonded to paper in this way, it cannot be recycled.
The vegetable ink used is also an important element, they use soy-based ink which is non-toxic, whereas traditional inks are derived from fossil fuels and contain chemicals.
Vegetable inks also make the recycling process easier, as it washes out of the paper more easily so it can be pulped again and, their inks make our gift wrap vegan too!
All their products are made in the UK for a lower carbon footprint, whereas almost all traditional gift wrap is mass-produced and manufactured internationally and shipped to the UK so it has a bigger carbon footprint.
It’s also about supporting British businesses of all sizes, so all partner products are sourced from UK manufacturers too!
They prioritise high-quality design as much as sustainability thus, they create beautiful bespoke designs, partnering with independent artists and illustrators.
