Eco Friendly No Tape Gift Wrapping from The Organic For You

Introducing #notape: The eco-friendly way to wrap Christmas gifts

This holiday season at The Organic For You, we’re focused on getting real, making real and giving real. And that doesn’t just mean giving products made with real, nourishing ingredients; it also means being conscious of how you’re wrapping gifts. The holidays result in a lot of wasted packaging and wrapping paper (some of which isn’t recyclable), but there are other options for creating beautiful, sustainable bundles. Here are a few of our offering.

FABRIC

Fabrics like bandannas your recipient will reuse and repurpose. Textiles add a beautiful handcrafted touch to your gift and provide an extra layer of protection for glass presents, like our deodorants that comes in a jar or your favorite skincare product.

 

BROWN BUTCHER PAPER

Instead buying glossy, printed wrapping paper that contains acid. opt for brown butcher paper to wrap your gifts. This adds a pretty rustic look (especially with jute twine, burlap ribbon and bows and botanical accents!) and is easy to recycle after unwrapping.

ACCENTS

Adding botanical as accents are a great alternative for traditional ribbons and bows, and there are limitless options when it comes to adding these to your gift wrapping.

For gifts with a rustic, organic feel, use seasonal accents like sprigs, pine cones, and cinnamon sticks to gussy up packages wrapped in kraft paper and tied up with twine. You can collect sprigs from your garden (we love pine needles, Eucalyptus, Dry Roses, Pine from our Christmas Tree, Lavender and Rosemary). You can also opt for small berry branches or dried fruit. Bundle these botanicals up and tie them to a bag or add them to a gift box with twine.

GO WITHOUT THE WRAP! 

Opt for a reusable burlap bag or cotton pouch to package your gifts. With this, you’re helping reduce waste, and your loved one gets a “two in one” gift. Some of our holiday gift sets come in our signature reusable pouches.
