As more ideas for reusing and recycling gift wrap pop up I'll be sure to keep adding them here.  When I was small there was so troubling about ripping though wrapping papers and later seeing them balled up in the trash. A favorite way to make it last was to use it as school book covers. Now they say, in the US at least, millions of pounds of extra waste is dumped in landfills during the holiday season between Thanksgiving and after New Years. For more reusable ways of wrapping gifts, such as with fabrics, see the Furoshiki area of the blog here.
