It’s that time of year again. The month of June has arrived, which means an excuse to purchase a new pair of rockin’ shades, Sunday afternoons spent lounging poolside, glops of sunscreen, heat waves that call for an extra scoop of ice cream, and a day to celebrate superheroes who go by the name of “dad”. Father’s Day is Sunday, June 20 and just like all the other holidays, it will be here before you know it.

Sustainable gift box wrapped in plastic free paper

Time to wrap it all up — minus the bow.

Let’s take a minute to talk about better ways to package these eco-friendly Father’s Day gift sets. The last thing you want to do is contribute to the estimated 2.3 million pounds of plastic wrapping paper that reportedly ends up in landfills every year.¹ Consider alternatives like decorating cardboard boxes, utilizing those reusable shopping bags for gifting instead of groceries, digging into your collection of accumulated gift bags, or fancying things up with reusable fabric such as furoshiki. 

Whenever a holiday or special occasion comes up, it’s an opportunity to repurpose the art of giving into a mission of saving — protecting the planet that allows us to live and cherish meaningful moments like Father’s Day.
