Republic Services delivered their "holiday-themed" press release the other day, which we will reproduce here, a reminder to us here at to NUVO, to just STOP USING CHRISTMAS PAPER ALTOGETHER.

sooooo sorry for the all-caps phrase...

NICE (recyclable)

Gift boxes

Tissue paper

Shoe boxes

Christmas trees

Holiday cards/envelopes

Gift bags (if paper)

NAUGHTY (not recyclable)

Bubble wrap (consider reusing)

Wrapping paper (consider reusing)

Ribbon and bows (consider reusing)

Anything on the tree

Sticky gift labels

Gift bags (if coated, laminated or dyed)

Foam peanuts
