I know, sad isn’t it! But, I bring it upon myself. I am wrapping my Christmas gifts in newspaper!
My eco-friendly wrapping will certainly be appreciated, but my tree-huggin’ ways won’t be overlooked and I fully expect some giggles. Though by now, my family should expect this from me.
Wrapping in newspaper makes complete sense. To me, it seems a little preposterous that we buy paper that has no use other than to look pretty, and then be ripped apart and thrown in the garbage.
This Christmas I am boycotting wrapping paper! Instead, take a look at my newspaper-wrapped gifts with recycled ribbon and homemade tags. I think they look very nice, and very green! And this wrapping paper has been read. So before we throw it away anyway (or recycle it), I’ll give it one more use.
Let me know what you think!
