Green Your Holidays: It's a Wrap
Tip #4: Save the Paper!
Instead of dressing presents with one-time-use wrapping paper, you can repurpose newspapers, magazines, or old posters or maps. Even better, turn bandanas or pillowcases into furoshiki (traditional Japanese wrapping cloths) or deliver gifts in a reusable bag or a handmade purse. If every family wrapped just three gifts this way, it would save enough paper to cover 45,000 football fields.
