Fancy Eco-Wrapping

By Karina | November 9, 2009

mapwrap.jpgIt’s still pretty early for this discussion, but with all things green, if you want to tread lightly during the holiday season you need to start a little earlier than you would otherwise.

So – how about getting started by collecting the materials you’ll need for gorgeous eco-friendly packaging of your gorgeous gifts? After all, we stand behind our Easy Peasy Tips with lots of support. Here’s a few things you might want to stock up on, so you’re not in a last minute scramble to make a gift wrap that you can feel good about:

Of course the most ecological gift will be wrapped in nothing at all – so if you’d like, pursue instead gifts which give back – we’ve covered a few options here and here.

What’s your favorite light-on-the-planet method to wrap gifts?

I pick up beautiful scarves all year long whenever I see them at the Goodwill, then wrap presents in them, tying them with a fabric ribbon. The whole thing is reusable and the scarf becomes part of the gift, either for wearing or just for wrapping a gift of their own in. I think they look beautiful, way classier than using paper, and I really barely spend anything on it.

The last gift we wrapped was in a NYC subway map. I move around *a lot* and I keep picking up maps – road map, bike maps & bus maps – that I have no use for once I leave, so they go into the craft box for future use.

I’m ignoring the question of whether I should be picking up these maps to begin with though I could probably make a pretty good argument that driving around lost uses too much gas and having reliable bike& bus maps reduce my car use.
