In an online campaign, the NGO #Żibel is raising greater awareness of the environmental damage that can be caused by wrapping paper.
As Christmas draws nearer involving the traditional giving of gifts, #Żibel is presenting alternative suggestions of how best to environmentally-friendly wrap gifts.
Some wrapping paper has colour and ink that is not recyclable and has to be disposed of with resultant damage to the environment.
Instead one can use brown paper, scarves or some other kind of cloth, newspapers or pages from magazines.
One can also use one’s imagination and use some other kind of material that does not damage the environment.
