14. Creative and Sustainable Ways to Wrap Gifts
Show Notes

Hey, Green Junkie!

With the holidays upon us it’s just about time to start wrapping all those gifts that our loved ones are excitedly anticipating.

According to a study from Stanford over 25 million tons of garbage are created during the holiday season and most of that ends up directly in the landfills.

That is a ton of garbage!!! 

Thankfully, there are some really fun and easy ways to wrap gifts that are affordable, fun for the whole family and also save some waste from filling up those landfills, all at the same time.

Here’s what to expect from this episode:

  • Which wrapping paper can be recycled and which ones can’t
  • What to grab around your home to use as wrapping paper
  • How to reuse things you already have to make custom wrapping
  • How to wrap your gifts in fabrics 
  • Creative ways to wrap with old books or sheet music

You’ll discover that and so much more in this episode.

By the end of this episode, Green Junkie, you’ll have more knowledge about how to wrap those gifts under the tree and have a lot of fun along the way.
