Transcript for Eco-friendly ways to wrap presents and shop online for the holidays
Becky Worley is here with tips for wrapping paper, ribbons an even online shopping. Becky, I kneed this. I was just telling you googling last week how do I do eco-friendly. We get there, the tree and there's all the paper and the ribbons and think, what do we do with all this stuff? A little game. Gene or garbage? Audience participation. We can ask them. So we'll start with wrapping paper. So it's beautiful. It's gold. It's laminated. Green or garbage. Garbage. Garbage. Yep. Sadly almost all recycling paper is garbage because that have lamb nation and metallic inserts. Better option. Get paper that is recyclable on composable. This is from wrap alee. I love their stuff. So cute and use paper bags but then make it personal. Kids' artwork. I'm sure you have a little around the house. Use leftover clothing that you know is going to end up in a landfill so just turn it into wrapping -- This is adorable. Really cute. Make sure you wash the clothing. You want it to be clear. That's a good point. Next up, we have ribbons and bows down there. Beautiful but green or garbage. Garbage. Garbage. Now, I not only -- you knew. I knew. Not only is it not recyclable but ribbons can mess up all of the machinery in the recycling bin so use natural products. You can use found items like these buttons you can glue on. Greenery. The last thing we have? Online shopping so those mailers, the bubble wrapper, green or garbage. Garbage. But today Amazon announcing a brand-new padded mailer that is 100% recyclable, thank you, yep. Also frustration-free packaging. Choose that, all recyclable. No plastic. Amazing. Becky always bringing it. That have been so helpful. Thank you so much.
