Every year in the UK we use more than 8,000 tonnes of wrapping paper for our Christmas presents, equivalent to 50,000 trees. And sticky tape, being non-biodegradable, prevents us from reusing those mountains of wrapping paper.

Now Future Present are challenging the design community to develop fresh and eco-friendly solutions to the problem, by designing sustainable and totally tape-free ways to wrap a Christmas gift.

The twenty best ideas are currently featuring on their website and also in our ‘advent’ window at Represent, with a different display daily throughout December. We particularly love the tupperware and tin foil creations!

Check them out here and get inspired!
