My family used to recycle bows. Some bows lasted for more than a decade; I remember one distinctive bow that got reused at least 15 times. We recycled wrapping paper; large pieces that we salvaged were used to wrap smaller gifts the following year. Paper that couldn't be reused went into the recycle bin. Now we donate to charity in each other's names. One year it's symbolic animal adoptions, another year it's donating supplies to refugees. Charities that we have supported include The Sierra Club, Defenders of Wildlife, Oxfam, Heifer International, World Wildlife Fund, and the IRC.

OK, enough bragging.

If there's ever a time of year to reduce, recycle and reuse - this is it!
