Although gift wrap is beautiful, when all is said and done it ends up in the trash. So this beautiful paper that we all spend time and money to buy, and wrap presents with ends up spending its remaining days in a landfill. This year think green and use reusable gift wrap.
Bags are always the quickest wrapping method to use. Reusable shopping bags are inexpensive and make great gift bags. Use some recycled tissue paper along with your present to fill them. Tie the bags with a custom gift tag, and your eco-friendly wrapping is complete.
Consider making custom gift tags from photos or old Christmas cards. These can often bring back great memories for the recipient, and these items live another day out of a landfill.
