Gift Wrapping for the Season’s Year End

With the season of giving right around the corner I’m sure you’re already making a checklist of presents. When you think of gift wrapping its usually rolls of fancy wrapping paper, stock cards to write messages on and cardboard packaging.

For all those enthusiastically planning your gifts let’s take a step back and just think of the multitude of materials that go into packaging a small bottle of hand cream. In Singapore alone 467,400 tonnes paper/cardboard waste was disposed of in 2018. If you can’t envision how much that is, it is the equivalent of about 4500 Blue whales.

So in preparation for this year’s gift exchange instead of going through rolls of wrapping paper that’s going to end up in the trash, how about trying something more eco-friendly and reusable?
