5 Eco-Friendly Holiday Gift Wrap Ideas

Whether you’re planning a handmade holiday or shopping for ethical and fair trade gifts this year, it’s a shame to put so much thought into the present only to wrap it up in less-then-eco-friendly packaging!

Conventional wrapping paper isn’t so hot for the environment. The paper often comes from virgin forests, it uses high impact dyes that pollute waterways, and once the gift is unwrapped, that paper is headed for the recycle bin or even the landfill. Not so jolly, right?

Luckily, you don’t have to buy rolls of unsustainable wrapping paper! Instead, check out some of these giftwrap ideas that are as sustainable as they are fun!

Furoshiki is a lovely idea, but by the time I bought a yard of fabric for every gift, I would be broke!
