Before Christmas there is almost 20 percent more waste than in the rest of the year. Packaging and wrapping paper are bought, used and then thrown in the bin. This creates a lot of garbage that is difficult to recycle. But there are sustainable alternatives.
Glittering, shimmering foils, brightly colored, shiny wrapping paper and artistically curled wrapping tapes pile up in front of the Christmas tree after the presents have been given. Not many people know that the yard goods are often dyed with azo dyes or mixed with inorganic pigments made from cadmium, lead or chromium compounds and that the printing inks are usually environmentally harmful. When the paints are washed out in the recycling process, a toxic paint sludge is left over, which can often only be disposed of as hazardous waste. The Custom CBD packaging coatings are also difficult to separate from the paper.
Waste Paper Instead Of Wrapping Paper
Old newspapers are great for wrapping gifts in them. Pages with a lot of text and few pictures look very nice. Pages from discarded books, maps, city maps or comics are also very good alternatives to conventional wrapping paper, which ends up in the trash after unpacking anyway. If you have received a present wrapped in colorful wrapping paper, simply keep the paper and use it again for the coming festival. Newspapers, brown wrapping paper or paper bags from the last vegetable purchase can be individually decorated with self-carved potato stamps and a little color. A lovingly designed packaging custom cbd boxes delights the recipient in addition to the actual gift. Packing tape or string instead of adhesive tape makes packing even more sustainable.
Sustainable Packaging for Small Gifts
Smaller Custom Mylar bags gifts can be wrapped in empty toilet paper or kitchen rolls. To do this, shorten the roll to the desired length, put the gift inside, wrap the roll, for example, with brown wrapping paper and wrap it with a string to form a “candy”. Another great idea is to give away CBD gummies in walnut shells. Simply put CBD in and glue it back on! Tin cans of biscuits or chocolates or vintage tins from the flea market are also nice gift wrapping. Jam and preserving jars are ideal for giving away different CBD products. Even tin cans can be recycled as packaging: when cooking, open the can on the flap at the bottom instead of the top, empty it and clean it thoroughly. For packaging, fill the clean can with the CBD product, close the can with a cardboard lid and decorate the outside.
