It’s Christmas Day (not today – we’re just imagining here). Aunty’s asleep in the chair next to a glass of sherry; Dad’s considering tackling the mountain of washing up; the kids have lost interest in their toys and are being brain-washed by Mary Poppins; and (if you’ve got around to it) next to the front door will be two or three bin bags of ripped up wrapping paper.
The UK alone is responsible for 227,000 miles of wrapping paper every year – enough to stretch around the earth 9 times – which makes Lush’s new Vivienne Westwood Knot Wraps/ neckerchiefs/ headscarves such a beautiful alternative: the wrapping is as much of a gift as the present inside it. (And you can reuse it next year if you want, just make sure you wash it first.)
The Knot Wraps are made with 100% organic cotton and cost £15, with all profits going directly to Climate Revolution Fund.
