The holidays are finally over and we can hopefully begin slowing down and getting our lives back to normal. It is not too late to make recycling resolutions. New Years are a great opportunity to not only reuse, but to recycle. Almost all of the boxes and wrapping paper can be recycled. There are practically endless possibilities to reuse. Most of the ribbons that are used to pack gifts can be used for several years. A lot of boxes that hold the gifts can be used for packaging gifts the next year. Some stores even charge for gift boxes! Pretty little gift bags can be used for somebody else’s gift anyplace down the road. They are way too valuable.
