I received a complimentary product in exchange for my honest review.
What’s the big deal? Why is it so important to recycle? What if I were to tell you that wrapping paper and shopping bags alone make up four million tons of trash every year is the US?
As a child I remember my grandmother on Christmas morning harping on us about ripping the wrapping paper. She would make us carefully open our gifts so she could save the paper for the next year. We used to roll our eyes and think it was just her frugal, Depression Era thinking. But you know what? She was on to something. We waste so many resources just for shiny wrapping paper. I am guilty of this, too. I’m a sucker for shiny things and love pretty wrapping paper.
I was given the opportunity to review eco-friendly wrapping paper from Wrappily I am excited to tell you about it.
The wrapping paper that I received was in sheets instead of a roll. Instead of feeling like wrapping paper you’re probably used to, it feels almost like the comics section of the newspaper.
