Thanksgiving is over. Dashing through the snow, you’re wondering all the way about gifts for the children. Don’t you hear the jingle bells? They wish you a merrier Christmas!
All they want for Christmas is you putting an end to wasting. A holy night without gift wrapping paper. A silent night, with no oil consumption, no greenhouse gases emissions. They wish you a Merry Christmas and no polluted water.
This year, perhaps, a little trick will come in a one-horse open sleigh. A trick so that all wrapping paper does not end up in the trash. What fun it is to ride and sing, if the forest remains standing.
According to this tip, you can just replace the gift paper with eco-friendly alternatives: Furoshiki, personalized jars or recycled paper.
Heavenly hosts sing, hallelujah you are helping to save the world by sharing love with your family. Such a holy night making spirits bright!
