80% of Various Holiday Waste Can Be Reused, Repurposed or Recycled

If you enjoy sending holiday cards, writing shopping lists, getting gifts delivered to your home in a protective box and wrapping presents with pretty paper and paper ribbons, you’re in luck. All of these fun, festive paper and paper-based packaging items can be recycled.

’Tis the season of giving, so be a force for nature by embracing paper guilt-free in your holiday traditions.

Holiday Wrapping Paper
Make smart choices. Opt for wrapping paper with a matte finish. It’s fun, colorful—and recyclable, unlike its foil counterparts.

Add crinkle paper to holiday gifts for (festive!) protection without regret.

Take action: It’s as easy as empty, flatten, recycle.

The more recycling, the merrier. Paper and paper-based packaging are the most recycled materials in the U.S., and more paper by weight is recovered for recycling than glass, plastic, steel and aluminum combined.

Trees
When you choose paper and packaging this holiday season, you’re supporting a sustainable industry. A healthy demand for forest products means healthy, thriving, growing forests.

Young forests create homes for an abundance of songbirds and small game birds.

Egg Nog Carton
The future looks bright when you use paper products like paper cartons and cups.

Holiday paper packaging and products, like New Year’s cards, are gifts that keep on giving (and living) by helping our forests grow.
