Readymade Eco Gift Wrap

Your carefully selected eco-friendly gifts need attractive wrappings that are just as eco-friendly. We've assembled this list of resources to help you find the perfect recycled yet artistic readymade papers, ribbons, bows, tags and everything else you need to make your present from Eco-Artware, well, presentable.

Why Use Readymade Recycled Gift Wrap?

Benefits of manufacturing recycled papers:

  • Conserves our forests
  • Requires less water
  • Saves on landfill space
  • Requires fewer chemicals and bleaching materials compared to virgin paper products
  • Decreases air and water pollution

Benefits of soy and vegetable-based inks:

  • Soy ink can be removed more easily than petroleum-based ink during the de-inking process of recycling. This causes less damage to its paper fibers.
  • The waste left from the soy ink during the de-inking process is not hazardous and can be treated easily.
