With the festive season upon us, the DIY junkies are slowly stocking up on arts and crafts supplies to decorate and wrap their gifting. But more and more consumers are beginning to realise the amount of waste this packaging amounts to. Fret not, here are 5 eco-friendly gift wrapping options that limit the amount of waste generated:
The newspaper is an option that is fundamentally the easiest of all and is available in everyone’s homes! Choose which sections work best for you, traditional black and white, the cartoons section, movie posters, or the red of the dreary financial pages- there’s something for everyone.
Everyone likes to brand their gift wrapping, and the easiest way to do that, with 0 waste involved, is to order a stamp with The Mend Packaging and use it to stamp your entire packaging! You can also get a wax seal for a unique finish to your envelopes and cards.
The ugly brown boxes that pile up during your online binge order session, can be repurposed into rustic and unique boxes by sketching a storyline, or a personal message all around the box.
A gift that keeps on giving- use a scarf to wrap your box, this multipurpose gift will fascinate your receiver.
Instead of using environmentally harmful plastic tape that has to be discarded after use, we recommend learning some nifty self-folding techniques that allow the wrapping to stay in place, and also look beautiful! Other options include purchasing completely plastic-free tapes and stickers with The Mend Packaging to beautifully seal all your products!
