A green holiday

A mom recently shared her concern about the rolls of wrapping paper she bought. She complained, “I wanted to go paperless, but it’s no fun for kids to open a reusable cloth bag on Christmas morning!”

She’s right.

To go green, look for reusable gift wrap made from newsprint – I buy big rolls all the time. Read labels to find boxes made from recycled craft paper or other degradable, natural, or sustainable materials. Substitute raffia or hemp organic cotton fibers for ribbons.

You can have a green Christmas!
