50 Ways: Wrap Creatively

On Earth Day we created a shirt called 50 Ways to Help the Planet. It has 50 icons representing different ways to help our environment, small steps that can add up to big changes.

One of those 50 Ways is to wrap presents creatively. We find this particularly topical as we all scramble to prepare for the holidays.

An easy way to wrap is to reuse gift bags, bows, and event paper. But you can also make something unique by using old maps, cloth, newspaper, or pages from one of those zillions of holiday catalogs you receive this time of year. Flip a paper grocery bag inside out and give your child stamps or markers to create their own wrapping paper that’s environmentally friendly and extra special for the recipient.
