Love Paper & National Book Tokens Competition

Paper has been at the heart of society for hundreds of years. Print, paper, and paper-based packaging is an essential part of our everyday lives. Whether it’s reading a book, sending a letter to a friend, receiving those online orders, or the bags we use for our shopping.

Even in today’s digital world, paper remains unique in its ability to touch our lives. Paper is renewable, recyclable and the natural support of new ideas and creativity. It’s inherently sustainable which is a good thing for our planet.

Enter our competition below to begin your own sustainable story – and explore our website for even more paper facts, activities, blogs and much more!
