It’s a wrap
It’ll be pretty tough to justify old-school wrapping and bows with all the recycled and natural alternatives available today. A quick Google search for “recycled wrapping paper” turns up an abundance of results. And decorating gifts is even easier with some out-of-the-box thinking. Pine cones, flowers and cinnamon sticks make beautiful accents with zero environmental impact.
