5 ideas for sustainable gift wrapping

Have you found a great sustainable gift? Then all you need is sustainable gift wrapping! We show you great and sustainable gift wrapping for Christmas and other occasions.

Sustainable gift wrapping is not that difficult to achieve. In fact, there are simple and inexpensive ways to lovingly wrap your gift without harming nature. All you need is a little dexterity.


1) Furoshiki: Sustainable gift packaging without paper

Cloth packaging originates from Japan and has been known there for over 1000 years. This sustainable packaging is particularly practical if the scarf is already part of the gift or if you have fabric at home that you no longer need. Our scarf, for example, is a gift from Snapchat (thanks again for the early Christmas package), which we reuse in this way.

2) Baskets made from tree-free paper as sustainable gift packaging

Admittedly: The tree-free paper is somewhat colorless. You can therefore go wild and add coloring and decorations! You can also adjust the thickness of the paper to suit your requirements for this sustainable gift packaging. Just give it a try.

3) Recovered paper becomes sustainable gift packaging

If you don't have tree-free paper at home, it's best to use recycled paper. We opted for a fancy magazine. This gives you plenty of material for homemade bags in all sizes and colors. Of course, you can also use tree-free paper.

4) Sustainable gift packaging: fabric bags

If you like to wrap your gift in a multipurpose bag, you can either sew your own bag or use our TreeShopper Bags made of 100% cotton. Gifts of all kinds are also in good hands in these bags, which usually have room for your belongings. Sustainable gift packaging that can also be used later!

Our TreeGlasses cases are particularly suitable for small gifts such as jewelry. The cases are made from 100% organic cotton and are made from fabric remnants from our TreeShirt production. This also minimizes our waste - a particularly sustainable form of packaging.

If you still don't want to do without wrapping paper altogether, we have our TreeWrap Allover. The paper is FSC and PEFC-certified, completely compostable and the printing ink is made from natural plant extracts.
