Have Yourself an Eco Little Christmas

When I was little, Christmas morning – particularly unwrapping gifts – was a very orderly affair. We were under orders to carefully peel off the sellotape and leave the paper intact so that my mum could iron it and reuse it the following year.

How times have changed. These days more gifts are given, all are individually wrapped, and the paper is ripped off. The crumpled shred of torn paper are scrunched up and thrown on the wood-burner. After all, it can’t be recycled – the paper is full of metallics and plastics for the sheen, and to prevent accidental ripping before the Big Day.

This bothers me. Such a waste of natural resources, chemical printing processes, transport (to get the paper from the factories to the shops), our money, and our time in cutting, sticking and wrapping. And for what? To make a nice display under the Christmas tree, and keep the contents an eagerly anticipated secret.

There has to be a better way.

And now there is! Utterly reusable, these Christmas wrap gift bags will make your gifts look lovely under the tree and save you so much time and money. Take a look at the full range here.
