Is recycled wrapping paper sustainable?
Yes, recycled wrapping paper is sustainable but the most sustainable option will always be what you already own: think about reusing wrapping paper, fabric pieces, old cardboard boxes, etc. If you have nothing else on hand or have an oddly shaped gift, old newspaper can make beautiful gifts!
So if you are looking to make your holiday season a bit more sustainable this year. Why not try some zero waste gift wrapping to go along with your intentional and thoughtful gifts? One of my favorite ways to use fabric is the Japanese Furoshiki fabric wrapping technique.
All you’ll need is a square piece of fabric, which you can reuse for years to come! Use fabric scraps from sewing projects or leftovers from fabric stores to reduce your impact even further.
I hope you are also finding the time to relax this busy season.
