Every year, vast amounts of non-recyclable wrapping material and decorations are thrown away after the gifts are unwrapped.
But there are so many ways to wrap them in a more sustainable way and we would love to share some of them with you.
Do you have old cloth or fabric scraps that you no longer need? Then Furoshiki could be an option to wrap your gifts sustainably this season. It is the Japanese art of wrapping gifts/goods using fabric.
Let's stay with fabrics. Perhaps you own a fabric bag that you no longer need. Why not use it to give away your present? A nice add-on: have the bag printed/personalized for the person receiving it, or paint something on it yourself.
Cream jars, cookie jars, and coffee cans: whether found in a vintage store or at your grandma's, they can be wrapped perfectly, don't cause any additional waste, and can be re-purposed after Christmas.
Old newspaper is a great choice for wrapping gifts. This way you can avoid buying new paper and thereby hinder the harm on the environment.
Traditional wrapping paper can usually not be recycled. If you want to use paper anyway, consider recyclabl paper. Did you know that our product packaging is FSC certified, 100% recyclable and has a double adhesive closure? So if you ordered something from us or if you plan to do so, you can reuse the packaging.
Instead of buying expensive plastic gift decoration, you can use natural and eco-friendly materials like branches, fir cones, dried oranges, etc. Get creative with your ideas!
Hope this gave you some ideas. Happy holidays!
