  • Background: Selfridges has converted its gift cards from plastic to paper to support its sustainable goals
  • Description: Gift cards always used to be made of paper but converted to plastic some years ago. Selfridges has been one of the most vocal anti-plastic retailers in recent years, and has taken a number of steps to remove huge amounts of single-use plastics from its four UK stores. It has also banned microbeads from beauty products, used recycled coffee cups to make its distinctive yellow bags and launched other sustainable initiatives.
  • Impact: Reducing single-use plastics
