Repurpose - Gift Box
March 04, 2017
If every family reused just two feet of holiday ribbon, the 38,000 miles of ribbon saved could tie a bow around the entire planet.
If every American family wrapped just 3 presents in re-used materials, it would save enough paper to cover 45,000 football fields.
Giving gifts during the holidays or birthdays is special way to show others that they are important to you. One way to help give one of the best gifts is to reuse gift materials! When receiving gifts, you can save items such as wrapping paper, tissue paper, gift boxes, gift bags, and name tags. Not only can you save materials from gifts you receive, but also boxes from the grocery shopping, electronic boxes, shipping boxes, and bags you get while shopping. By saving these materials, they can be used during the holidays instead of buying something brand new. This is a sustainable way to reduce the amount of waste by reusing materials you already have.
