By Erika F. Washington

You’ve seen the aftermath of a great Christmas morning. The entire living room is complete mayhem: piles of wrapping paper, crumpled tissue paper, and bows littered in every corner. You can probably fill an entire trash bag with Christmas debris, which can make even the not-so-green cringe a little.

So SCGH found an alternative to gift wrap waste from disposable wrapping paper: useful, reusable eco-friendly gift bags.

Wrapsacks is a company that manufactures and sells drawstring eco-friendly gift bags, a disposable gift wrap alternative.  You can even follow your Wrapsack”s journey as it”s re-gifted from one person to another using Track-a-Sack® on the website. The Wrapsacks come in six sizes and are made of 100% hand dyed cotton. The company offers a video tutorial on how to wrap your gifts with the Wrapsack. Prices start around $4.99.

Envirosax is proud to help protect the environment for tomorrow’s generation by providing an alternative to disposable online casino shopping bags with eco-friendly gift bags. They are lightweight, portable, and waterproof, and each one holds the equivalent of two supermarket plastic bags thanks to reinforced seams. They can also be used as gift wrap. Prices start around $8.95.

These options seem a little pricier than buying a roll of paper and a bag of bows but, over the course of a few holidays and birthdays, the eco-friendly gift bags will pay for themselves.

Plus, you’re not adding to landfills, which makes everyone’s holiday just a little bit merrier.
