Show how much you care
Get creative with your gift wrapping, whilst saving waste and adding your own personal touches. Recycled brown parcel paper gives your gifts that nostalgic look of a bygone era, which looks classy and is better for the environment. You can tie the paper with reusable twine or cloth ribbon.
Personalise your gifts
You can also use once-loved fabric as an alternative to wrapping paper. What a great way to add your own personality,with cloth from an old dress or whatever item of clothing was once special to you. Just make sure it's not cut from anything they gave you last year! You could even add a few sprigs of mistletoe, holly or other Christmas greenery, to complete the look.
Protect your gifts and the planet
You can protect breakables with shredded paper, which makes a great alternative to polystyrene. And you can cut up last year's cards to use as personalised gift tags. If you have any other ideas for an eco-friendly Christmas, please share them with us on Facebook or Instagram.
