This gorgeous Italian Cherry White and brown self printed coloured paper carrier bags with twisted red robe Handles. These are strong bags ideal for many uses, a perfect alternative to plastic bags!
Gift bags are often not recyclable because of all their adornments, and because they are usually made from a combination of paper and plastic (that's why they're so sturdy!), but they're very convenient
There are tons of ways to make gift bags environmentally-friendly. The best solution? Consider investing in cloth gift bags (super reusable), or using plain brown craft paper bags (super recyclable) instead of purchasing new paper gift bags. If you do purchase new bags, check for bags made of recycled and recyclable materials — forgo glitters, furs, noise makers, ribbons, etc — and go into the purchase with an eye for reuse. Buy in solid colors or gender- and event-neutral patterns that insure easy reuse.
