Gift packaging is taken for granted in our lives and is often discarded. Before the introduction of single-use products, it was common practice to reuse gift wrap and packaging. As we get used to disposable packaging, the concept of sustainable packaging is often forgotten. By considering environmental pollution and loss of natural resources, we should work towards sustaining the environment whilst looking for ways to present gifts in a beautiful manner.
