Post-Christmas: The Eco Way to Dispose of Holiday Trappings
Despite the name, wrapping paper isn’t always a paper product. Glitzy, shiny wrapping paper is often made out of foil, while many other wrapping paper is made with a thin, glossy plastic coating — both of these may render the wrapping unrecyclable. One option for dealing with all the wrapping paper is to reuse it. This works best if you remove the paper in one piece, but if you’re more of a rip ‘n’ tear sort, you can still keep wrapping paper scraps to use as gift tags or for wrapping small gifts.
