Make Your Gift Giving Eco-friendly With Gifts Made From Recycled Materials

Buying presents made from Recycled Materials is like giving three gifts in one! You'll be giving back to the planet and you'll feel good about it too.

The Wrap On Single Use Wrapping Paper

We waste millions of pounds of gift wrap each year. But we don't have to!

Tens of thousands of trees can be saved IF we think about using other gift wrap alternatives, like cloth items, magazines, newspaper, butcher paper, and insist on using recyclable types if we do want to use actual paper.

And we should always use gift wrap that is free of shiny items like glitter, plastic coating or other micro plastics, so it can to be recycled and you can feel all warm and fuzzy for giving a gift to the planet as well.

Earth Grammie's Warriors on Waste

Fast Fashion Fighter - Jianhue

FAST FASHION = high volumes of lower quality garments at low price levels

The fashion industry is among the top global polluters. Changing how garments are produced and consumed is essential to achieving international climate goals. Emissions from clothing production would need to fall by 50-60% within the next seven years to stay below 1.5-degree increased warming but if we continue on our current path, the fashion industry is projected to double its emissions within a decade.

This is primarily due to faster fashion cycles, increased discount sales, shorter lifespan of clothing items, the use of difficult-to-recycle synthetic fabrics, destroying unsold items and the practice of sending second-hand clothes to landfills in developing countries.

Here is where you can help ------------------------->

How can you do your part?

  • Do you really need that cheap trendy new garment you'll only wear once or twice?

  • Why not shop in your closet? If you're like Earth Grammie there are sure to be some pieces you've forgotten about.

  • Any chance of breathing new life into an older once loved piece?

  • When you do clean out your closet and are ready to let go of items, look for places to sell or donate what's left.

  • Ask companies you love if they have a take back program, if not ask them to start one.

  • Can you borrow, lend and trade clothes with friends and neighbors? This is also a fun way to build community.

  • Make sure to look at the quality of the fabric and durability in the the new clothes you do buy.

  • And why not take a look at some second-hand shops or online re-sellers for fun new items to spruce up your wardrobe?

"Do we really need all that plastic when we buy our fresh food?

There is so much excessive use of plastic packaging in the food industry. Plastic has become the go-to choice for convenience, but we can't ignore that it's wreaking havoc on the environment. It's causing some serious damage to our marine life and ecosystems and is even in the food we eat!

So, it's high time we re-evaluate our habits and start considering alternatives, like biodegradable materials for packaging. Or better yet, using less packaging altogether. That would be a huge big step towards reducing plastic waste!

We can make a remarkable difference by being more mindful of our shopping practices and choosing more sustainable packaging to give our planet a much-needed breather and secure a greener future!

WARRIOR on WASTE - Recycle Artist

Thomas Dambo

Earth Grammie caught up with Thomas Dambo at the Nordic Museum outside Seattle before his presentation and just after the unveiling of his sixth troll sculpture in the Pacific Northwest.

Each of these incredible sculptures save around 5 tons of wood waste from being discarded in landfills. It's astonishing to think that Thomas and his team have created over 100 trolls worldwide. That's a whole lot of trash into treasure!

Thomas uses the attention generated by his sculptures to raise awareness about waste management and help think of trash as a resource. He encourages us to reconsider the possibilities of repurposing wood waste, such as using it for building materials in furniture, homes, and other structures. The potential is endless.

He aims to inspire us all to start regarding our waste as a resource for someone else to repurpose and reuse. By doing so we can all become Warriors on Waste!
