Another way to green your holiday is by changing your wrapping. Look for recycled paper wrapping or reuse gift bags from years past. Also, don’t buy anymore mylar or shiny ribbons. Look into raffia or other natural ribbons. You can use feathers, pine cones, berries and other found objects. I have a lot of old ribbon and wrapping paper from years past that I plan on using up, but once all these have been used I am promising myself not to purchase anymore virgin paper and non-eco-friendly ribbons. FYI, the bad part of these traditional wrapping items is the toxic dyes, use of virgin resources and petroleum based components. Good luck in wrapping green.
