No matter what the occasion – holidays, birthdays, baby showers, weddings or something else worth celebrating, there’s an eco-friendly way to wrap your presents with style. In most cases, when it comes time to shop for gift-wrapping items, we end up with an excess of wrapping paper, tissue paper, ribbon, tape and all those other little things needed to make a present look attractive. Fortunately, there is a way to wrap a gift without spending too much money on unnecessary supplies. More importantly, you can do it while pleasing the planet.
CrinkleCo, based out of Washington, DC, is a company that allows you to do just that. Not only do they offer easy-to-use gift-wrapping kits, they also manufacture their products from recycled paper and soy-based ink, which helps conserve our planet’s energy. It’s the benefits and combination of these two ingredients that make CrinkleCo an amazing green alternative when it comes to gift giving. You can feel good about your choice in taking a step toward preserving the planet when giving a gift, wrapped up stylishly in a CrinkleCo kit.
Nominated as one of the best new products at the National Stationary Show in New York, CrinkleCo’s kits have everything you need to wrap a present without excess waste. Kits include the wrapping of your choice, as well as pre-cut pieces of tissue paper, ribbon and tape. With choices like wrapping paper, pillow boxes, gift bags and purse style gift bags, wrapping a gift becomes simple.
According to Tom Klinedinst, owner and designer, “CrinkleCo products allow you to make a great presentation easily and conveniently, while eliminating the excess waste.” Tom also states that, “Although kits aren’t necessarily ideal for wrapping a multitude of presents, they are cost-effective way to wrap a gift or two at a time when the occasion presents itself.”
The prices of kits range from $4.99 to $6.99, and come in a variety of patterns, with instructions on how to assemble your gift. In most cases, all gifts can be wrapped up in five minutes or less.
At this time, CrinkleCo products are sold at a limited number of locations throughout the United States and Canada. However, for your convenience, you can shop the online store at www.crinkleco.com. Purchases of $80 or more will receive free shipping. New product and pattern designs are currently in the works, so keep your eye out for more wrapping solutions in the future.
Next time you wrap a gift, consider planet Earth, and give the gift of green.
