Green Gift Wrapping for Valentine’s Day

Here are some ways to make your Valentine’s Day a little greener. Instead of using wrapping paper try the following:

  • Newspaper or magazines
  • Wrap the gift in a related gift like a blanket, towel, sweatshirt, etc.
  • Use the bag from the store, some stores offer special gift bags for Valentine’s Day
  • Gift bags that can be saved for next year
  • If you must use wrapping paper, use paper that can be recycled. This is just as important as whether or not the paper is made from recycled paper. Just because wrapping paper was made from recycled paper does not mean it can be recycled. Some papers have glitter or dyes that make it unable to be recycled.
