Reusable gift bags are alternatives to those plastic-lined foil bags that you see sold in gift shops. Not only are they one-time use, wasteful and expensive, but due to the glitter and gold, most have to go in the trash, as the plastic lining means they can’t be recycled. Use with zero waste gift tags. This gift bag is from Linen & Lisle.
Don’t leave jute string (or ribbon, human hair, lint, pet fur) out for birds, as all can harm chicks (choking, strangulation, chemicals). Birds have been making nests for thousands of years, they don’t need our help. Do not use plantable gift tags in homes with pets, as many wildflowers are toxic to them.
These gift bags are different. Not only can they be reused or recycled due to being made from natural materials, but they are also are more interesting. In fact, you’ll likely want to use some of them for other purposes.
