Yes. America produces about 5 million tons of waste during the winter holidays. Of this, about 4 million tons are from wrapping paper as well as shopping bags. Always try to buy 100% recycled wrapping paper, such as styles made by Peaceful Valley. They also use soy ink and embed wildflowers in it, so that you can plant it after the holiday season!
I agree with the previous answer. There are eco-friendly wrapping paper you can find at places like Target or Wal*mart, however, you can also take it a step further by wrapping them in textiles. For example, for a small gift you can wrap it up in a silk scarf or you can buy resuable bags – such as Lucky Crow Gift Bags.
