P+PB New Holiday Campaign Builds On Summer Launch


With an increased use of paper products like cards, wrap- ping paper and corrugated shipping boxes over the hol- idays, it’s an opportune time to build on the Paper and Packaging Board (P+PB) sustainability campaign’s current success with 48 million video views to-date. In market now are new videos, print ads and digital banners that trans- form our animated campaign into a snowy wonderland. Our new holiday ads communicate that using paper products incentivizes forest landowners to plant more trees and that by recycling, paper products continue to live on and on. The holiday campaign assets drive consumers to articles to help educate them on how to bring sustain- ability into their holiday traditions as well as a new holiday infographic about how 80 percent of holiday waste can be reused, repurposed or recycled. The colorful infographic includes gift boxes and greeting cards that open and close and a bird landing on the same type of trees used on Pa- and more. DS Smith: Brits To Use One Billion Boxes From Online Xmas Shopping DS Smith estimates that as seasonal shoppers continue to turn to the internet for their gifts, consumers will have more packaging in their homes than they can recycle. The data showed that last Christmas, Brits who shopped on- line bought an average of 20 gifts. With the shift to on- line shopping showing no sign of abating, that leaves UK homes dealing with an extra 954 million cardboard boxes this Christmas. And that presents a real recycling challenge. With de- clining packaging recycling rates, 248 million boxes or 124,000 tons, risk being stored in people’s homes, land- filled, or incinerated. Conversely if we could recycle all those extra boxes, they could be worth over £12 million to local authorities. Rogier Gerritsen, Head of Recycling at DS Smith, said, “As more consumers do their Christmas shopping online, we’re expecting Brits to have even more cardboard than usual in the lead up to Christmas. With research we did earlier in the year showing that nearly half of Brits (47 per- cent) were saying that their recycling facilities needed to be bigger, the situation over Christmas is only going to get worse. This means that consumers risk being over- whelmed with packaging and having too much to recycle, leading them to put their boxes in the wrong bin or store them in garages as their recycling bins fill up too fast. “We know this situation is not restricted to the festive period, but it does emphasise the need to urgently look at how we can improve recycling infrastructures and in- crease our recycling rates. Consumers can help by flat packing their boxes to get more into their recycling bins,
