From day one of Gilded Bee we have always emphasised the importance of how a gift is presented. We feel just as strongly today as we did then that the beautiful wrapping of the gift is almost as important as the gift itself.
However, to reconcile with this, was another core value that we should operate sustainably, minimising our impact on our environment. Marrying these two ideas has always required thoughtful development - we want our gifts to have wrapping which conveys their premium nature which intrigues the recipient and makes them feel special whilst minimising the use of disposable materials.
Where possible all of our gift boxes and packaging are made from recycled and recyclable materials. We never use plastic in our packaging and all of our printed cards are uncoated to make recyling them easier. We're always on the look out for new inovative more environmentally friendly ways to gift box items.
So, just because you’ve unwrapped your gift and the wrapping is no longer needed for an item doesn’t mean it has to be the end of it’s life. Whether you’ve been lucky enough to receive a Gilded Bee gift or something else that has come beautifully wrapped, here are some ideas to repurpose those components.
How do you reuse giftwrapping? Are you that person who carefully removes sellotape and then irons wrapping paper?!? Or is it straight in the bin?
