How to have a Zero-Waste Christmas

I feel like this should have been the first in my Christmas series. I think I was too excited to share my tips for alternatives to traditional wrapping paper that I forgot to begin with an overview. This year, I am hoping for a zero-waste Christmas. I mean, I want a completely zero-waste life, but Christmas is always packed with waste. We buy wrapping paper, crackers, tinsel, and more.

4 Alternatives to Traditional Wrapping Paper

You may not be aware, but traditional wrapping paper often can’t be recycled. Isn’t that insane!? Yet we use it every single year without a second thought. I think the element of surprise is wonderful, but we certainly need to start being more aware of how much disposable products we use. Especially at this time of the year!
