Share Unwanted Packaging
Love Wimbledon BID businesses can sign up to Packshare for free, to receive and share packaging with neighbouring businesses and households, to help reuse waste packaging in Wimbledon. In every town in the UK, some businesses are buying in brand new packaging materials whilst others are paying to have the same materials taken away.
Packshare is a huge, searchable database of businesses around the UK who can reuse packaging, including independent high street shops, distributors, galleries, craftspeople, and online-only shops. To register, businesses need to provide basic details of their business and what packaging you can use, and to donate just search by your postcode and what you have.
Packaging can include everything from bubble wrap and cardboard boxes, to packing peanuts and plastic bags.
