Great Christmas recycling tip

23 December 2009

I subscribe to the Weekly Quick Tip that organizer Aby Garvey sends out every week. Yesterday’s was fantastic. She said it came to her from a participant in one of her online workshops.

Here it is, and I quote:

When you’re unwrapping holiday gifts set aside the gift wrap to run through your paper shredder. Use the shreds to safely pack up your holiday decorations or as beautiful cushioning material for any packages you send throughout the year.

How great is that?

You can sign up to receive Aby’s tips every week. They’re a quick read and they pack a punch.

Many of us tend to waste paper and other gift-related items during the holidays, but it does not have to be this way. We can still be generous and prefer more practical items to avoid paper wastage. Aside from that, it would be nice to support recycling and be good examples to others to prove that we still help in the conservation of our natural resources. Thank you for sharing your thoughts regarding recycling.
