Recycable Gift Wrap from Earth Presents {Review/Sponsor Spotlight} #GreenChristmas

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

 

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Unfortunately that means a lot of waste. The Christmas season is full of presents that contain tons of packaging and on top of that, are normally wrapped to give as a gift. I recently learned that most wrapping paper is not recyclable. I use to think that it was and that at least I would recycle it after it was used. Apparently, wrapping paper has additives like metal to make it shiny which makes it unable to recycle.

 

 

Earth Presents, a division of Peace Evolutions LLC, celebrates the perfection of our Earth and recognizes the gifts that she brings us all. Our mission is to honor the past, preserve the present and protect the future by generating a fundamental shift toward environmental responsibility.

Our motto is: Recycle the Spirit of Giving™

We all make a difference. We can continue to pollute as we do on a daily basis or change habits in small but effective increments. Earth Presents provides you with an easy choice to help make positive change. We are committed to being green in every aspect of our business.

 

Green Presents was started in 2007, when founder Julie Littell decided that she didn’t want to have bags full of wrapping paper to throw away at Christmas time. Along with not being recyclable, most gift wrap has dyes that are not good for the environment. And most wrapping paper is not made with recycled material. Did you know that every winter holiday, North America alone uses 38,000 miles of ribbon. That’s enough to go around the world and tie a bow…wow…that’s a LOT of waste! Earth Presents made it their mission to decrease waste during the holiday seasons. Their gift wrap is made with 100% recycled content, 100% post-consumer waste and processed chlorine free. They also use vegetable-based inks which makes the gift wrap 100% recyclable. They also created custom dyed bows from 100% post-consumer content: recycled plastic bottles! Their plastic packaging is biodegradable and their mailing boxes are 100% recycled corrugate and the mailing labels use Forest Stewardship Council and recyclable adhesive.

Build a Snowman

 

Earth Presents carries a Holiday and Spring line of gift wrap. Their designs are inspired by the artwork of artists with disabilities. A portion of proceeds from sales of their products benefit WVSA, School for Arts in Learning. The gift wrap comes in units of two 24″ x 36″ sheets, either rolled or folded. You can also order matching gift tags and bows. They just recently started carrying greeting cards which are designed my the same artists and made with 100% recycled content and vegetable based inks.

 

I was sent as assortment of folded gift wrap from their holiday and spring collection. The paper is beautiful in person and select prints have a cutting grid on the back. I was sent the Snowman, Reindeer and Christmas Tress holiday gift wrap. As well as the Purple Flowers and Blue Flowers spring gift wrap. As soon as I got the gift wrap, I was able to wrap a birthday present for a friend using the Purple Flowers gift wrap. I plan on using this gift wrap for Christmas and I will either save it to reuse next year or recycle it once it has been used.

 

 

You can see how big the sheet of gift wrap is. This is almost the width of my table. I even placed a pen in the middle so you could compare the size.

 

A beautiful finished product!
