Forget recycling - reduce instead

From "How to wrap gifts with textiles"
Here's a hint from Recology to reduce non-recyclable items going into the landfill.

Christmas (and other occasion) Packaging

Bright, shiny wrapping paper is appealing for a moment, but produces unnecessary waste and serves as a prime example of one-time use.

Instead of non-recyclable wrapping paper, try using the Sunday comics or non-shiny paper that can be recycled or composted.

Cloth wrapping is also a beautiful, reusable and eco-friendly way to wrap presents. Tie it all together with some leftover yarn or string to keep pesky tape out of the picture.

The internet and Instagram are full of ideas about fabric wrapped gifts.
