After Christmas everyone ends up with lots and lots of wrapping paper. If you were really an environmental champion, no doubt you would unwrap you presents carefully, then you could reuse the paper next Christmas. Always providing you keep a note of who sent you what paper, so that you don’t send them back their own paper, otherwise they will know what a tight so and so you are.
Alternatively you can recycle wrapping paper in the District Council’s red bin. Not the green bin or the grey bin, nor the blue bin, that’s a cardinal sin bin. But you must first remove all traces of sellotape and make sure there are no labels with string still attached, nor any ribbons or tinsel, definitely no tinsel. Under no circumstances must there be be any glitter on the paper because apparently it gunges up the Councils shredding machine and that could stop the massive effort the Council is making in 2017 to save the world.
Fortunatly, after my decluttering, I seem to have located rather a lot of scissors. Strange that I could not find a single pair when I was wrapping up the presents !
That gave me a good idea from my time spent in Japan, perhaps I could do some Origami with the aid of all the scissors and scrap paper.
