WRAPPING UP FOR A GREEN XMAS

WRAPPING UP FOR A GREEN XMAS

All those wrapping paper, old plastic baubles, greeting cards and other rubbish end up making a little Christmas tree pile of trash in our landfills. This season, don’t get your gifts wrapped at the store. Spare a thought for Mother Nature with these simple tips:

DECK THE HALLS WITH REUSABLES
You’d be surprised at how many pretty ornaments you could whip up from just a few reusable items. Google it.

USE YOUR POTATO
Instead of using wrapping paper, get out some old recyclable paper, carve out half a raw potato, and get your hands messy with some potato print paper.

TAG IT
Don’t spend precious money on a 3 by 3 gift tag. Cut out your own from old Christmas cards or decorative paper.

BUY GREEN
If you must by wrapping paper, make sure you get the ones made out of recycled paper. They’re quite pretty and vintage looking too!
