chewing the cud.

Caleb and I are trying to reduce our 'eco footprint' and I find that one of the hardest ways to do that is when it comes to gifts. At Christmas we used old newspapers to wrap our gifts, but I am in love with these fabric wraps from Chewing the Cud Weddings. Printed on organic cotton with soy-based inks these fabric gift wraps are printed with sweet sayings: Give Love, Give Joy, Give Luck, and Give Cheer. They sell for $12. These fabric wraps are a great way to reduce the amount of paper that is thrown out come gift time - whether for a wedding or baby shower, a birthday, or holiday.
Of course, you can also use any scrap fabrics around your house. Or, go out to your local flea market and find vintage fabric, scarves, or handkerchiefs. The point is to use things that can be used again and again and again, then you can feel good about gifting without extra waste.
