$5 Billion worth of gift wrap is trashed each year.

Cut down on the waste and offer your presents in reusable boxes and bags.
Decorate your own box, or use a reusable bag as gift wrap.

Check out http://www.reusablebags.com/ for ideas.

Think beyond rolls of wrapping paper when you are wrapping.
You can use leftover pieces of wallpaper, comics, or old magazines.
Or purchase basic craft paper and decorate with berries, pinecones or small boughs from your Christmas tree. Have some yarn you won’t be using? Wrap it around a plain package for an easy update.

    Magazines can be recycled at our local library; donate them. These donations are sold for a very reasonable price – helpful to our environment and the library budget.
