One of the greenest ways to wrap gifts for any occasion is to forget paper, ribbons, bows and even tape altogether and use fabric instead. It's a Japanese method called Furoshiki and involves covering the gift in fabric and using the extra to create intricate knots and bows. It's easy, reusable and beautiful. Use remnant fabric you might have, or get 5 pounds of free remnants online at canvasetc.com. To learn how to wrap in the Furoshiki method, there are plenty of quick tutorial videos online.
