Why then are plastic tapes still the default when they can’t be recycled and cause so much paper gift wrap and packaging to be sent to landfill along with them? With Cascayde paper tape this doesn’t have to be the case. Made using kraft paper from FSC approved sources and a natural plant-based adhesive, this tape is fully recyclable. It’s printed in the UK with a vegan-friendly ink and is strong and sticky. It’s easy to use as it can be torn straight from the roll. These Christmas designs are perfect to keep your gift giving as planet friendly as possible! CRAFTER’S COMPANION This Crafter’s Companion Tape Pen is a crafting essential. It’s easy to use and non-messy! The RRP is £3.99. +44 (0)1388 660 930 43 GLUES & ADHESIVES
