Photo Friday | Repurposed Wrapping

A short and sweet post on this Christmas Eve Eve, as you're probably finishing up wrapping your gifts and drinking hot chocolate.

A few weeks back, online secondhand shop Thred Up shared this statistic on how big an impact we could make if we used repurposed materials to wrap gifts instead of new, shiny paper.

By using materials like newspaper, used paper bags, fabric, recycled-content paper, or cloth bags, we can save a lot of trees and keep a lot of materials out of landfills.

If you've still got wrapping to do, consider repurposing materials instead of buying another roll of wrapping paper that cannot be recycled. (More on that in this blog post!)

And with that, I hope you all have a very happy Friday and enjoy the beginning of Christmas weekend!
