WRAPPILY ECO-FRIENDLY GIFT WRAP

IMAGE COURTESY OF: Wrappily

Wrappily offers a new take on wrapping paper. With the help of neighborhood newspaper presses, they’ve created wonderful, bright patterns and print them on 100% recyclable newsprint. Emboldened with fresh designs on both sides, renewable newsprint is an answer to the millions of tons of trash generated by wrapping paper every year.

In addition to creating earth-friendly wrapping papers and ribbons, the company donates a percentage of its sales to “Miracle on 22nd Street.”  Every year, hundreds of Santa letters written by children in need are mistakenly addressed to an apartment on 22nd Street in Manhattan—and every year a dedicated group of volunteers help mobilize an army of elves to fulfill those letters.

20% of the purchase price of Wrappily’s O Tannenbaum wrapping paper will go to support “Miracle on 22nd Street’s” work of connecting families in need with real-life elves.

You can make one small change that will make a big difference: Gift happily with Wrappily!

DID YOU KNOW
Most confetti and glitter is made of plastic (polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and polyethylene terephthalate (PET), respectively) that has been metalized. The plastic film from which most glitter is made takes about 1,000 years to completely biodegrade on Earth. That’s nothing to celebrate.
