Buy second hand, make things yourself, buy local, give sustainably sourced presents, use recycled gift wrap, make reusable fabric gift wrap, make reusable gift bags, the options are endless…. Christmas day is one day, how long will your giving be impacting on our Earth?
Intrigued by the idea of fabric gift wrap? It is essentially a piece of fabric (with the edges neatened with the sewing machine or pinking shears) that you use to wrap up your presents with the addition of reused ribbon or string. This can be reused each year by either yourself or the receiver.
