For eco-friendly holiday gift wrap you’ve got a ton of choices. You can stay greener by using leftover wrap from previous years, using reusable gift wrap – such as a nice basket or little wooden box, or use items like the comic pages for kids gifts. If you go new make sure you get reusable or recycled/recyclable wrap. Make sure to recycle your gift wrap after the season as well.
Here are some cool green gift wrap choices.
- Green Furoshiki – These are lovely and made from supple, easily tied Dupioni silk. The three color-coordinated furoshiki wraps enclose presents nicely and then can be used as scarves or elegant table decor, among other things.
- Recycled Wrap – blue or red
- Recycled Wrap – Gratitude
- Recycled Gift Bags
