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...
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)
