Curlicue, the eco-friendly gifting start-up, is launching three new and exciting product ranges for the holidays as well as bringing back its most popular designs from last year. Following a successful 2019, the London based company has strived to change the way people gift to a more sustainable experience.
Due to plastic coating, glitter and foiling, more than 227,000 miles of wrapping paper is thrown into UK landfills during the holiday period. These plastic elements break down into micro-plastics and pollute the earth. An overlooked source of waste, consumers can make the simple swap to Curlicue’s eco-friendly gift wrap in order to make that simple step to a better, cleaner world.
All of Curlicue’s products are plastic-free, vegan and have a low carbon footprint as all products are manufactured in the UK in a waterless and chemical free environment. Curlicue products boast the use of planet friendly vegetable ink and do not contain any plastics, meaning when loved ones have excitedly unwrapped their gifts they can scrunch it up and toss in the recycling eco-guilt free.
Curlicue prioritises its design as much as its eco-credentials, each Curlicue print is bespoke and designed by UK based designers.
Curlicue founder Hema Chauhan said “The holiday season is an incredibly important time of the year for families, and for many of us it may well be the first time we’re able to spend time with loved ones in close proximity. 2020 has brought to light the possibilities of what can be done to better the environment by changing our behaviours, and we at Curlicue are thrilled to help move one step closer towards a more sustainable world. One gift at a time.”
The new Christmas range features the following new prints:
• Secret Santa
• Pawfect Present
• Bauble Noire
Returning 2019 popular prints:
• Winter Woodland
• Mistletoe & Holly (pictured above right)
In addition to their original prints, Curlicue also provides a bespoke print service for brands, retailers and gift-wrapping services as well as collaborating with individual designers.
