Use the Sunday funny pages to wrap your next gift. It’s colorful, super inexpensive and is an innovative way to reuse your newspaper before it gets recycled.
The most popular wrapping paper, with its dye, laminate and non-paper additives (i.e. gold and silver glitter) make it non-recyclable – and landfill bound. Not surprisingly, during the busy holiday season, shopping bags and wrapping paper alone contribute four million tons of garbage.
Choose wrapping paper made from post-consumer recycled content, or opt for fabric gift bags that can be used again and again – a built in bonus for any gift!
