Traditional gift wrap and wrapping accessories can contain a great deal of plastic and glitters – which in turn can be damaging to the environment. Instead, you can switch up your gift wrap and use eco-friendly alternatives – you may be surprised just how great your gifts will look in eco-friendly wrapping. We have a range of gift bags, string and tags that are made from recycled materials as well as reusable gifting options to choose from.
What is the most environmentally friendly wrapping paper?
At Ecovibe we love any gift-wrapping options that are either reusable or made from recycled materials. The reason traditional gift wrap can be harmful to the environment is because it typically contains plastics, and glitter.
What can I use instead of gift wrapping?
Wrapping paper isn’t the only way to create a beautiful looking gift – instead you can use recyclable gift bags and boxes or even reusable bags which make a great gift in themselves. Alternatively you can use baskets, tissue paper and even newspaper if you are looking to use things you have around the house.
Is wrapping paper environmentally friendly?
Traditional wrapping papers are not considered to be environmentally friendly. This is because wrapping paper is not the same as regular paper – most of the time it is shiny and can contain glitters. These types of paper cannot be recycled and are made up of a number of microplastics which can end up polluting our planet and oceans.
