Creation Care Tip of the Week

Opt to Wrap Gifts in a Reusable Bag Instead of Wrapping Paper

Wrapping paper can only be used once while gift bags can be reused. You can give a festively concealed gift and care for creation at the same time. Or you can wrap your presents in newspaper or brown paper and personalize with your own hand drawn decorations. You can still be festive and make the gift special without buying wrapping paper.
