With all of the disposable waste generated during the holidays, reuseit.com seeks to raise awareness on green giving, ensuring that the season of giving also becomes a season of giving back to the planet. In hopes of lowering the impact of gift giving on the environment, Reuseit.com is offering eco-friendly gift wrap and reusable gift bags.
According to the Clean Air Council, an additional 5 million tons of waste is generated just during the holiday season from disposable gifts, gift packaging, single-use wrapping paper, decorations and other holiday disposables. By making sustainable choices when it comes to gift wrap, customers can dramatically reduce the number of trees cut down to produce single-use wrapping paper.
“Eco-conscious consumers don’t have to choose disposable wrapping paper or a single-use paper gift bag to give a thoughtful gift anymore,” said Brand Manager Allison Kinney. “We provide a range of reusable wrapping options, as well as reusable shopping bags, which can also be used to wrap gifts. Wrapping with reusables is a fun, innovative way to give a gift, because it allows you to give two gifts in one.”
Providing alternatives to disposable wrapping paper and gift bags, reuseit.com offers a wide variety of reusable gift wrap options, including 100% organic cotton gift wrap with soy-based inks from Chewing the Cud, nylon gift wrap from Lyziwraps and recycled gift bags from Bag the Habit—all of which come in a range of sizes, patterns and colors.
The sustainable brands also provide video tutorials on how to wrap gifts using their reusable gift wrap products, along with innovative ideas on how to utilize reusable shopping bags, napkins, and other reusable materials to wrap gifts; giving two gifts in one.
