I plan on not wrapping as many presents to save on paper usage :o)

Nancy Kenney November 12, 2012 at 12:06 am

A great idea!

Heidi F October 30, 2012 at 9:37 am

We plan on using recycled materials to make decorations 🙂

Nancy Kenney November 12, 2012 at 12:06 am

Recycle as much as possible for the Holidays!

Jeniffer Smith October 30, 2012 at 2:34 pm

I’m definitely not wrapping as many presents, and most of them will (hopefully!) be handmade!

Jamie G October 30, 2012 at 9:09 pm

Handmade gifts

Jenny October 30, 2012 at 9:53 pm

I have no idea! Hopefully you girls will have some good ideas for me at the party!

Jolene October 30, 2012 at 11:42 pm

I plan on making lots of gifts and using reusable bags instead of gift bags !

Tracey N October 31, 2012 at 11:43 am

I always reuse giftbags from year to year and this year I thought I would make more homemade gifts. Also organic and natural gifts. We reuse all our decorations from year to year and don’t use many things that require extra electricity to use. I also use lots of handmade ornaments that the kiddos make each year which I love because it makes it more sentimental and creative and fun to see the changes from year to year.

Candace October 31, 2012 at 1:29 pm

We green it up by reusing paper, containers, etc!

Sarah L November 2, 2012 at 10:19 am

I plan on reusing gift bags and boxes from last year

Emily @Random Recycling November 3, 2012 at 8:10 am

I’m trying to buy more from local businesses and small craft sites.

Kamila November 7, 2012 at 10:16 pm

So looking forward to this Twitter party and finding out the gift ideas you girls have in store including wrapping. I like to use kraft paper and colorful ribbon or old newspaper with a nice ribbon or bow always does the trick.

Also, Amanda saw you are eco-hosting on Abe’s Market — CONGRATS, absolutely love your website and the content!

Great ideas and thank you Kamila! I am really excited to be working with them on such a fun event 🙂

tiffany November 8, 2012 at 10:57 am

we also do organics, and a lot of times we hand make (repurpose) gifts. We also reuse a lot of the things from years past.

Tiffany (NatureMom) November 9, 2012 at 1:30 pm

Many ways… second hand gifts, green wrapping, green toys are some ways.

I’m going to wrap gifts with cheap fabric that I can use later in quilts.

Maria A November 9, 2012 at 4:40 pm

We are upcycling our tree this year to make cute coasters and presents for next year! And I am in the process of knitting stockings for our family! We’re trying to make homemade, repurposed gifts this year!

Nancy Kenney November 12, 2012 at 12:07 am

It is really easy to be green for the Holidays. From recycled materials to reusing old items – resifting if possible as well.

Christine L. November 12, 2012 at 2:20 am

Just being careful to recycle, you would be surprised how hard that is!

Amy November 12, 2012 at 12:38 pm

Plan on homemade gifts

Dan November 12, 2012 at 10:09 pm

We are limiting our gift giving to each other in general just to not contribute to consumerism at large. For our children, we are investing in a few eco gifts from small businesses!

@tiffany053p tiffany Ard November 12, 2012 at 10:29 pm

we will be hand making gifts or giving out donations in people names!

Jane m November 12, 2012 at 10:56 pm

We decorate reusable containers for homemade baked goods, & decorate glass bottles for homemade eggnog.

Nikki November 13, 2012 at 6:30 am

We use recycled materials when we can, esp. with wrapping paper.

Cloth or newspapers for wrapping paper is very friendly and chic.
