In the Know: Eco Gift Wrapping Tips with Abe’s Market

Recently, I had the privilege of working with the amazing producers of Abe’s Market on their “In the Know” series. We created a How To segment on Eco-Friendly Gift Wrapping that’s inspiring lots of green gift giving ideas. Here’s the video that will continue to air on In The Know this week:

If you’re not into DIY gift wrapping, Abe’s Market has several eco-friendly options to make your life simple this holiday.  From fabric gift bags and tree-free paper to “out of the box” containers, your gifts can make a statement that’s both stylish and sustainable.

As Joy mentioned in the video, these gift bags are actually made from stone. Available in both large and small sizes, you’ll find festive prints like the pretty lavender above or more traditional red and green.  As sturdy as these bags are, you’ll find that they last longer than conventional paper gift bags.

Makers of a popular line of Market and Produce Bags (see below), Bag the Habit also offers fun fabric gift bag sets. Another Bag the Habit standout for gift giving is their Luxe Tote Trio Set.  Super simple for beautiful gifts in a hurry, we think fabric gift bags are the way to go!

It’s not about hating plastic; it’s about loving your reusable bag. Bag the Habit makes shopping solutions that will inspire you to reuse, every time you shop.  This present comes inside it’s own gift bag.

Abe’s Market must have a hundred options for gift sets in reusable baskets, boxes, or tins.  Many of them are consumable gifts like food or personal care items.  Consumable gifts get the green vote because as long as you recycle the packaging, nothing ends up in a landfill.  We listed several options in our Green Gifts for a Coworker post.

 Recycled Storage Box Set

How about a new twist on gift wrapping for children?  Hide a gift inside a gift.  Kids will love these sturdy recycled box/blocks.  They also double as storage for toys, books, or treasures.
