The Holidays without Wrapping Paper? It's possible.




I find the holidays can be a bit overwhelming, the shopping, wrapping, cutting, taping. And then the terrific mess at the end. Did you know that Americans will dispose of 4 million tons of wrapping paper and shopping bags over the holidays? Most will not be recycle or reused. So, what can we do if we don't want to be part of the problem? If you are looking for something with a bit more class than paper bags and news paper to wrap those gifts, I have the perfect suggestions: Reusable wraps!

Bobo wraps are beautiful reuseable alternatives to paper. The concept of the wrapping scarves come mainly from Korea and Japan. Patricia Lee, founder and director of Bobo wraps, has evolved this concept into an artistic expression of elegance. There is no need for tape or sissors. It is so simple to use. Your holiday gifts could not look more beautiful. Our readers will receive 15% off orders by entering "zoeb15" as your coupon code at check out. Go to http://www.bobowrap.com/.



For a more modern twist on the reuseable wrapping try the Lyziwraps. These adjustable wraps conform to fit to a variety of shapes and packages. They are sporty, adjustable and washable, made of durable nylon fabrics that resist ripping. Simply slip your gift in and adjust the silk ties.

It is possible to enjoy greener holidays and celebrate in eco-friendly style.

This is such a great idea!
I make up delicious goody baskets every year for friends and family and one thing that is important to me is that once the goodies inside have beeen eaten the giftee has either a coffee mug, a tote bag or something else that they can reuse for an alternative need in the future. Not only is this the more eco friendly way but it will keep them thinking of me year round.
