This week's Nappy Gurus theme is reducing Christmas waste πŸŽ„

This year, I'm wrapping the presents in brown paper and string. The paper has been recycled/can be recycled, and it looks super cute! The tag is glittery and obviously can't be recycled, but they're left over from last year, so I'm using them up!
Little #toptiptuesday for you, if you're stuck on gift ideas, step away from the Lynx Africa sets, or any of the generic, plasticy gift sets on every shelf in every shop you pass this month πŸ™„ and have a little look at the eco living range at @thenappygurus instead! There are some lovely little zero waste gift sets and stocking fillers on the website. You can use my code LAUREND for a 10% discount too πŸ™Œ

How are you reducing your waste this Christmas?

    I always use reusable bags and whack them out every year!

    I love that wrapping paper!!! We bought a 60m roll of brown paper last year so we'll be using that for a few Christmases!!! 🀣

    Lovely paper!

    Gorgeous present! I'm not a fan of those gift sets - definitely trying to buy eco conscious, small, local, or gift experiences. We get coffee from a local roasting company as a stocking filler for the grown-ups, bought a restaurant voucher for a couple of friends, and my husband is getting a safety razor (having seen and tested mine I got last year).

    My husband still gets Lynx gift sets πŸ˜’ I hoped it would fizzle out but everyone thinks he’s a teenage boy for some reason πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

  • @little_green_clees 3 December, 2019

    Love your wrapping paper πŸ˜ƒ we're using up the stash of Christmas rolls & reusing as many Christmas bags as possible. I try to keep them each year. Brown paper next year though πŸ‘πŸΌ
