Greener Gifting from Kitchen Design Notes

With Black Friday quickly approaching I thought I’d share a post from Laurie at Kitchen Design Notes.

She writes about the importance of being mindful this Holiday Season of the waste our wrapped gifts can create.  If each American family wrapped just three presents in recyclable materials, we would save enough paper to cover 45,000 football fields. 

For people who aren’t crafty I like one of her suggestions of “wrapping” a gift in a towel.  If you are staying with a relative or friend for the holiday a monogrammed hand towel wrapped around your gift tied with a grosgrain ribbon is perfect.

My family often decorates packages with ornaments.  It adds a great decorative touch and can be enjoyed year after year.

I’d love to hear about other great things people do.
