Zero-Waste gift wrap ideas

Wrapping gifts during the festive season? It can be a real dilemma in terms of waste. Tons of paper is thrown away after only being used for a few hours and some types can’t even be recycled (a thin layer of plastic is sandwiched between the two layers of paper, making it non-recyclable). Greener alternatives are available, such as Kraft paper or newspapers, but the best of all (and our favourite) is the Japanese fabric wrapping technique.

This quick and easy option is also the most eco-friendly one, as the fabric with which you wrap your gifts can be reused time and time again. So, get your scarves and fabric scraps at the ready and follow the tutorial!
