3 Ways to Gift Wrap More Responsibly

Unwrapping gifts is a load of fun, but sadly it has a negative impact on the planet! Thankfully there are eco-friendly ways to wrap! Here are a few ideas!

1) RECYCLE
Yes, do the obvious and recycle the gift wrap and products that you can. BUT take it a step further and see what you have around your house to craft wrapping paper out of! Old newspapers? Brown bags? Use the materials to create your own wrapping paper, bring out the paint, and get super crafty with it!

2) REUSE
Save and reuse those bags and tissue paper that friends gift to you instead of buying new wrapping supplies. This is great because 1) it reuses previous materials and keeps them out of landfills 2)it's free!  

How to wrap gifts sustainably

3) FABRIC WRAPPING OPTIONS
There are a few ways you can go with this option! Use cloth to wrap gifts in. This allows the gift receiver to be able to reuse the cloth as a tea towel, wrapping supplies, etc. AND it prevents any silly wrapping materials from ending up in landfills. Ten Thousand Villages has some awesome recycled Sari Gift Wrap that is colorful and fun! Great for reusing! Or another way to embrace fabric wrapping is by purchasing re-usable organic cotton bags to gift! This acts as a bonus gift! The receiver can reuse the cotton bags when heading out to the farmers market or grocery store!
