This eco-friendly paper tape is a great alternative to plastic parcel tape. It is made from renewable craft paper that is acid free and water and solvent resistant. It is easy to tear by hand and also fits into a tape dispenser. We use this tape ourselves so we can vouch that it work just as well as plastic tapes!
Our recommended method of disposal is to leave it on the cardboard box when recycling. At present, it is much more likely that paper recyclers will still be using systems to recover this mechanically for energy recovery through incineration as they do with plastic tapes rather than repulping it. Hopefully this situation will improve as paper tapes become the norm and the recycling industry advances in line. This way the paper could be re-used up to about 7 times unlike plastic which can only be reused a couple of times after recycling.
All of our packaging is also plastic-free so please reuse, recycle or compost where possible.
