6 Eco-Friendly Gift Wrapping Ideas to Try This Year

6 Eco-Friendly Gift Wrapping Ideas to Try This Year

Every holiday season, US households throw away 25% more trash than any other time of the year. A big part of this daunting number includes the materials used for gift wrapping. The shiny and glittery wrapping paper, ribbons, and plastic bows can’t be recycled and end up in landfills. The biggest problem is buying excessive amounts of these non-recyclable wrapping materials and decorations, and then throwing them out once the gifts are unwrapped. If each family in the US wrapped just 3 of their holiday gifts in reusable materials this year, it’d save enough paper to cover 45,000 football fields. The small steps towards sustainability matter.  When you get down to gift-wrapping the personalized gifts you ordered with Printful, start by looking for any reusable materials you have at home. If you don’t have anything useful, check in with your friends and family: they’ll be happy to oblige. Let’s start wrapping!
