5 Eco-Friendly Holiday Gift Wrap Ideas

5 Eco-Friendly Holiday Gift Wrap Ideas

Whether you’re planning a handmade holiday or shopping for ethical and fair trade gifts this year, it’s a shame to put so much thought into the present only to wrap it up in less-then-eco-friendly packaging!

Not so jolly, right? Luckily, you don’t have to buy rolls of unsustainable wrapping paper! Instead, check out some of these giftwrap ideas that are as sustainable as they are fun!
