3 Simple Tips for More Eco-Friendly Gift Wrapping

By Emma Stessman

Any expert gift-giver knows that presentation is almost as important as what’s wrapped up inside. Gift giving is an art after all, and when you spend so much time picking out the perfect item for your loved one, you want the packaging to reflect that same thoughtfulness.

Unfortunately, after the unwrapping frenzy, those piles of paper, plastics, and bows don’t just amount to an annoying mess to clean up (OMG there’s glitter everywhere). They also add up to a whole lot of waste—much of it non-recyclable.

Fear not! (Didn’t you hear? ‘Tis the season to be jolly.) To lighten your environmental footprint, you don’t have to sacrifice the bells and whistles (or, um, bows and ribbons) while wrapping this holiday season. Try these few simple shifts to wrap the eco-friendly gifts you’re giving this year in greener packaging.
