A Very Eco Christmas: Wrapping

In our series of Christmas tips to help make your festive season more sustainable, here we provide ideas on gift wrapping:

  • Use materials you already have to hand – don’t go buying new wrapping paper if you already have some in the house.
  • Reuse gift bags, no one is going to remember what gifts they contained from last year.
  • Utilise paper you already have in your home – old magazines, papers, books can all be used to cover presents, and will make your gift wrapping unique!
If you want to avoid material that will end up in a bin or recycling perhaps think about material that could be part of the gift – scarves, or fabric wrapping. Have a look around second hand or charity shops for old silk scarves that can be tied around your gifts
If you’re inclined towards a bit of sewing, you could even upcycle an item of clothing no longer worn into a fabric gift wrapper!
