Holiday Gift Recycling
Tips for Wrapping Paper, Bags, Boxes and Bows
Gift boxes are another great, green alternative. They can be dropped in your recycle bin. Gift bags, on the other hand, can be a little more difficult to recycle especially those fancy decorative ones with all the glitter. Here’s an idea – use those bags for future holidays and special occasions.
As for the tissue paper that is often put in the bags, get rid of it. Experts say the paper fibers are just too short to recycle. If you put a bow on a box or bag, save it and reuse it. If you don’t, throw it out. Bows are not recyclable.
