Simple, Natural and Eco-friendly Gift Wrap Ideas

Have you ditched the commercial gift wrap yet? An astonishing estimated 30 million trees are cut down each year just to supply Christmas gift wrap in the U.S. alone. Plus, it's not recyclable and burning it is toxic to our health and the environment.

We have the power to stop this unnecessary waste and better steward our beautiful planet. And it's easy, given the stunning eco-friendly options available. I've given up purchasing gift wrap in favour of using natural and repurposed materials. It's cheaper too! 

Are you with me?
