Earth Friendly Gift Wrap

Americans discard 25% more garbage between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day than at any other time of year──which adds 5 million extra tons of garbage in our landfills each year!

Good Green Habits for Eco-Friendly Gift Wrap

You can help generate less waste during the holiday season with these easy green steps: 

  • Cover gifts with felt and reuse the felt next year─this works especially well with odd sized gifts!
  • Wrap gifts in old maps, colorful newspaper comics, posters, reusable gift bags, and decorated paper bags, cardboard boxes or baskets.
  • Decorate them with reusable ribbons, twine or bows—and after opening presents, save them for next year.
  • Buy low-cost rolls of leftover wrapping paper from Goodwill or the Salvation Army.
  • Purchase gift wrap made from 100% recycled paper or paper made tree-free fibers such as hemp.  
  • Make gift tags from last year’s holiday cards.
