Around 2.7 billion of the world’s population are Christians. Apart from this, people from different religions across the world do celebrate this exciting festival wholeheartedly. The real objective of observing this festival is to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. There is a ritual of giving gifts or presents to others on this day. Santa Claus or Father Christmas, a fictional character, brings gifts to well-behaved children on the eve of Christmas. However, you can be a secret Santa for any of your friends, relatives, and well-wishers and present them. This article talks about the Christmas gift bags that can be given any other time of year.
Have you ever thought of the type of material used in making of these Christmas gift bags? How big is this market for a seasonal sale? How can we use reusable, eco-friendly fabric Christmas gift bags for the sake of our environment? This article will answer all these questions.
Why Use Fabric Christmas Gift Bags?
We are all increasingly ecologically mindful these days. Diminishing resources is something I think we all should act on. I found the other day that Brits alone trash approximately 108 million rolls of Christmas wrapping paper each year! Can you imagine how that affects our environment? Indeed, most of the gift wrappers contain plastic or polythene material that is not at all biodegradable. In our house, we’ve continuously been paper smoothers and reusers (really that’s a lie, I’m the paper smoother – I do despise wastefulness and drive everybody nuts as I go around collecting wrapping paper as they dispose it!)
One way to minimize this paper waste is to allow a greater appreciation of reusable gift bags. We can use store-bought paper sacks numerous times before they got folded or disintegrated. Cloth gift bags will last for a long time. I’ve been testing some unique strategies to form reusable fabric gift bags with a few beautiful Christmas print textures from Minerva.
Where To Find Ecological Christmas Gift Bags?
You’ll be able to find points of interest in my reusable gift bag experiments on the Minerva web journal. There’s a full instructional section for square rice sack and links to excellent tutorials on making various gift bags. Additionally, you can get sewing, knitting, needles, crafts, quilting, home décor, and bridal gift ideas there. The collection is enormous and pocket-friendly. Some of the notable mentions on the Minerva collections are unlined drawstring bags, giant lined drawstring bags, mini lined gift bags, and the komebukuro or Japanese rice bag.
Minerva has an astounding collection of Christmas print textures at incredibly low prices. The best thing is, you can also make reusable bags by watching tutorials. For instance, from an old shirt or dress, you can make several small or medium bags.
We should be aware of the environmental imbalances and make small contributions to save this world. Undoubtedly, using reusable eco-friendly fabric gift bags will help as mentioned earlier. Indeed, for a big thing to happen, small steps are required. Therefore, this article discussed the importance of reusable Christmas gift bags, how to make them, and where to purchase them. Merry Christmas and happy gifting!
