It's true that our paper tubes are 100% biodegradable, but it doesn't stop us from finding creative ways to reuse them. Our papermaking DIY walkthrough demonstrates zero waste packaging in action. Watch as we take regular paper tubes and turn them into artisanal kraft paper, perfect for drawings, personalized notes and letters.
