Reduce waste and give wildflowers!

With all the good things the holiday season brings, it unfortunately also comes with a lot of waste. From gift wrap and holiday cards, to decorative details and disposable party supplies for entertaining, it's amazing the negative impact such a joyous occasion can have. But the good news is that is doesn’t have to! By being extra conscious to go green during the holidays, you can help reduce the carbon impact of the season.

That's why we made these freebie tags with seed paper and used a recycled box that we topped off with a natural pop of green using a pine branch. It's the perfect way to keep all of the charm without creating any waste. Plus, seed paper gives the bonus gift of wildflowers which are beneficial to important pollinator populations.

Eco-Friendly Gift Wrapping Tips

  1. Leave plain boxes unwrapped. You can easily dress them up with some ribbon and a recycled paper tag.
  2. Use natural elements such as pine branches, acorns, or leaves for decorative details instead of plastic bows.
  3. For smaller packages, reuse old maps, magazines clippings, or even newspaper. You can surely find something you can upcycled into gift wrap around the house and dress it up with twine or natural elements.
  4. Try fabric, it's a great way to go green because it can be reused.
  5. If you are buying wrappping paper or tags, look for those made from recycled material or chose kraft postal paper. Because it's is plain and uncoated, you are avoiding the harmful inks and glosses.
  6. Reusable bags of any kind are always a good choice to keep it green.
