wrap recycled

Can you tell the paper, bags, bows & ribbons are all reused from last year?

It takes my family a long time to unwrap presents, especially big ones, because everyone knows they’re supposed to try and save the wrapping paper. We keep a brown paper bag nearby to recapture gift bags, ribbons and bows too. Americans spend over $7 billion on wrapping paper a year, but why use beautiful or fun paper just one time? We even have a joke of regifting the same green and white polka-dot gift bags back and forth each year. They’re older than my kids now!

What can you reuse this holiday season? You can also recycle wrapping paper and holiday cards as long as they’re not metallic or glittery.
