Here are a few ideas on how we can be a little less wasteful this Christmas:
Try to reuse: conventional wrapping paper can be very difficult or impossible to recycle as most of them are dyed, laminated or include glitter. Instead, you can use recycled brown paper or old newspapers to wrap your presents. You can even use a brown paper bag that you have at home, cut the rectangle bottom and take out the handles and use it as wrapping paper.
Ditch the sticky tape: It cannot be recycled, instead, you can use tape made from paper or cellulose which are both recyclable materials. You can even replace tape altogether by using old ribbons and strings you may have at home to wrap your presents.
