With the holiday season upon us, the Eco-Committee would like you to think about the environmental impact of wrapping presents. Every year, a massive amount of wrapping paper is sent to landfills, making wrapping presents a wasteful practice. Most wrapping paper is recyclable, except for shiny, metallic, and glittery types of wrapping paper. BUT the good news is that there are environmental solutions to wrapping paper. For example, you can use gifts bags, which can be reused, you can wrap presents in plain brown paper and decorate it or you can even pack presents in old boxes (e.g. shoe boxes) and decorate the boxes. The idea here is to cut down on single-use items that end up in landfill! Be creative this Christmas and make an effort to wrap presents more sustainably!
