Recycle-Ready Wrapping Paper

Wrappily Wrapping Paper


Did you know that most wrapping paper is recyclable? As long as it's not metallic or covered in glitter, you can usually recycle your wrapping paper, but millions of tons of gift wrap end up in the trash every year. Wrappily, the 100 percent recyclable and compostable gift wrap brand, is working to counteract that with a mission centered around sustainability. The woman-owned company makes all of its goods plastic-free, and ships the products in biodegradable packaging made from plants. And, don't worry, the gift wrap isn't just bland, brown paper. You can find the cutest array of colors and prints for the holidays (and any other occasion) at Wrappily—just remember to reuse or recycle it when you're done.
