It’s a wrap: some packaging facts
If every sheet of wrapping paper used in the UK were laid end to end, they would stretch 227,000 miles — enough to circle the world nine times.
In the UK, we send 5 million tonnes of paper to landfill every year. More than 8,000 tonnes of paper are used at Christmas.
On average, it takes six mature trees to make a tonne of paper. This means approximately 50,000 trees will be used this year.
