Recycle cardboard shipments and paper gift boxes. That includes the window of a doll's box or action figure; this type of plastic must be kept in the trash can. Not all types of gift wrapping are recyclable, but many are. There are beautiful gift bags and sacks made of muslin and hemp, which give a beautiful and natural look to your Christmas gift.
Furoshiki, traditional Japanese cloths used to wrap gifts or products, come in several sizes and are a great way to give as a gift. There's nothing more delicious than a beautiful gift wrapped under a tree, waiting to be opened (when opening the gift is almost as fun as the gift itself). First, find out what your local waste management company accepts and doesn't accept when it comes to gift wrapping, and if they have days dedicated to delivering or picking up any gift packaging material. The main disadvantage of reusable gift boxes is that they're harder for you and the recipients to store, so they're more likely to be thrown away rather than saved for future gifts.
