The holidays are quickly approaching, and that means lots of gifts to wrap. Save time and leave no trash behind this year by wrapping with VZWraps reusable fabric gift bags. Plus, enter to win a pack of wraps to get you started!
A few Christmases ago I went to get my bin of wrapping supplies, and I stopped dead in my tracks. I simply couldn’t stand the thought of wrapping presents in paper that was just going to be thrown away. I recycle everything — I’ve even driven two hours to take a TV to a recycling center — but every Christmas, we’d easily fill a trash bag with torn paper and ribbons, most of which can’t be recycled. That was the start of VZWraps reusable fabric gift bags.
With VZWraps, there’s no more sitting on the floor, let alone on the scissors, trying to fold paper into neat corners with one hand while reaching for the tape with the other. Just place your gift in a VZWrap, tie the ribbon, and your present is wrapped. It takes less than a minute per gift. Best of all, there’s no trash left behind after the gift is opened. Instead of gathering up a big bag of trash on Christmas morning, you can gather up your VZWraps and put them away until next year.
VZWraps are available in five sizes and a variety of Christmas, Hanukkah, birthday, and all-occasion fabrics. Themini is just the right size for a gift card or small item such as jewelry, and the large at 21” wide by 24” tall can hold lots of toys, clothing, or household items. The wine bottle bags are perfect for dressing up a bottle for a hostess gift, or they can also be used to wrap DVDs, video games, body lotions, and other “skinny” gifts.
The bags are made from cotton, and most of the ribbons are made from recycled materials, including a grosgrain version that’s made from recycled plastic bottles and a satin made from 100% post-consumer recycled polyester. Keep your eye out for organic cotton options coming early in 2012.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, Americans generate one million tons of waste during the holiday months. Do your small part to cut back on that massive number, and make the season easier on yourself, too!
