Invest in eco-friendly gift wrap

Regular wrapping paper, as it turns out, is often not recyclable. Check with your local solid waste management organization, but generally papers that include any sort of foil, glitter, or are coated in plastic have to be thrown in the trash. Several amazing options for wrapping in a more eco-friendly way include:

  1. Brown craft paper (search Pinterest for “brown paper gift wrap”…you’ll swoon) and decorative cotton string or paper ribbon
  2. Wrapping with scarves/cloth (see Furoshiki), or
  3. Purchasing recycled newsprint made into adorable gift wrap like Wrappily.

Here’s a post listing several eco-friendly wrapping paper alternatives. Here’s another with the super cute idea of wrapping with maps.
