Wrapping Paper


Updated on March 9, 2019



Put in the recycling bin.


Use for as long as possible before disposal. When you do buy wrapping paper, opt for recycled content and avoid shiny paper. You can also use cloth, expired newspaper, and paper grocery bags.


Shiny wrapping paper leaves metallic flecks in the paper recycling process.
