When you’re choosing your cards and wrapping paper this year, avoid those with glitter. This is because glitter is made from plastic and can’t be separated out from the paper and card fibres during the recycling process.
Not all wrapping paper is actually paper. Some is made with plastic or foil. To check if it can be recycled, try the scrunch test. If you can scrunch the paper into a ball and it stays scrunched, you can recycle it.
