With the environment on everyone’s lips right now it’s a perfect time to look at how we can reduce our impact over the coming festive season.
125,000 tonnes of plastic packaging will be thrown out, rather than recycled and 6,000,000 trees are thrown out after Christmas, creating more than 9,000 tonnes of additional waste. That’s about five times the weight of the London Eye!
Between Green shares our easy ways to create a green Christmas:
We all know that person who’s armed with the big black bag ready to collect the ripped wrapping paper (normally mum!) Give them a break this year with reusable fabric wrapping.
Fabric wraps are a Japanese tradition known as Furoshiki. The word refers both to the craft and to the cloth itself and transforms the world of gift giving. These square wraps of fabric are used to wrap gifts and can be used time and time again making them the future of eco-gift wrapping.
This Festive Tigers design is the perfect playful print this festive season. These premium wraps will last much longer than single fabric wraps and with the addition of the satin ribbon, they give that extra special finishing touch.
This size is perfect for most small to medium gifts including books, dvds, small bottles, A4 sized prints.
They are available in our Between Green Subscription Box for December (£20 includes UK P&P and plenty of other festive eco friendly goodies) or the full kit is sold separately including fabric wrap care and etiquette information, how to wrap your gift guide, satin ribbon and matching tag for £18.00 HERE
Another eco-friendly alternative is using plain brown paper. You can easily decorate with pens or stamps or add dried fruit or cinnamon to your gifts – In Decembers Between Green Subscription Box you’ll receive fresh cinnamon sticks for decorating gifts, your Christmas tree and Christmas crafts.
Easily add to your Eco Friendly Gifts and Decorations with dried orange slices.
