Unfortunately, wrapping paper with colorful foiled designs, ribbons and bows is not recyclable. But greener options are easier than you think.
Upcycle by reusing interesting paper like old road maps, the comic section of the newspaper or artful magazines. Glass jars and vases decorated with tissue paper make beautiful displays for gifts, and they can be repurposed as candle holders.
No-waste gifts are another great option to create lifelong memories and celebrate your relationships. Take cooking or painting lessons together or invest in season tickets for your favorite sports team.
