Christmas is just around the corner and you need to think about how we will package all beautiful gifts with love. Adhesive tape, scissors, bows and beautiful colored Christmas paper. This basic equipment of every professional package looks innocent, but if you think more, you will find that it is all nonsense. All this shiny disposable beauty conjures up an enthusiastic expression for a few minutes for the recipient, but it doesn't shine like that in the trash.
The more colors the worse the recycling
Every year there is a different package paper in the course - green, red, gold, etc. The more colors and different applications the package paper contains, the worse it is for recycling. Especially in the case of cheap products, the more colorful the paper, the greater the subsequent burden on nature. And then there are a lot of shiny ribbons, bags, and plastic bags, which are a complete disaster for nature. Fortunately, there is also an alternative in the form of natural packaging materials.
We pack gifts in green
Put your hands to the work this year and enjoy the gift wrapping and put your heart into it. All hands, including the left, can do it. You can buy a roll of recycled paper, bast or plain string at a stationery store or online. Use cardboard on the restless corners. Take a nice trip and collect some nice natural products to decorate your gifts (spruce, arrows, bark, leaves), it's up to you and your taste. You can also tastefully paint the wrapping paper or press it with a potato printer.
It definitely doesn't end with paper, this year's hit of gift wrapping is the Japanese furoshiki technique. It is a wrapping of gifts in a square piece of fabric. A beautiful scarf or napkin is perfect for this.
