How to Stay Festive & Wrap Gifts Sustainably

December 07, 2017

There’s no need to take the surprise and wonder out of the holidays. The gifts you give can be merry and bright—and go easy on the earth! We work with global artisans who use sustainable materials to create beautifully patterned wrapping that will keep your gift a secret until the big unveiling. Reuse and upcycle for zero-waste. Check out our top picks for a truly green holiday season.

Tree-free Wrapping Paper

Green your gifts by choosing this tree-free paper alternative. Indian artisans blend scraps of fabrics and biodegradable dyes to create a broad spectrum of colors and patterns. The sets of wrapping sheets also come with natural twine and matching gift tags—everything you need!

Upcycled Sari Wraps

Fabric wrap has been used in Asia for centuries as an elegant custom, transforming a gift into an exceptional keepsake. This set of six eco-chic wraps are handcrafted from upcycled Indian saris, large enough to wrap items like wine bottles.

Treeless Gift Bags

Choose from printed recycled fabric paper for medium to larger gifts or smaller bags with drawstring closures are perfect for sustainably wrapping palm-sized gifts like jewelry or ornaments. Assorted colors and designs.

Hemp Twine

This all purpose natural material is a wonder for tying up packages instead of plastic ribbons that go straight to the landfill. Available in four festive colors.

Sari Jewelry Pouches

In dazzling colors and patterns, these little upcycled wonders are perfect for hiding jewelry or small objects until the big reveal.
