It's that time of year! The askHRgreen.org elves have been making a list and checking it twice, to see who is naughty or nice when it comes to eco-friendly holiday packaging. Every bit you do, from shopping with reusable totes to using gift wrap and containers of your own creation contributes to a healthy Hampton Roads community. To celebrate a holiday season that is both bright and eco-friendly, check out the askHRgreen.org checklist of what packaging materials are recyclable and what's not-and have a fun, green season ahead!
Naughty. Not recyclable: Greeting cards with glitter or metallic accents, gift wrap and gift bags made of foil or plastic, ribbons and bows, plastic packaging encasing toys/products, tissue paper, wrapping paper with glitter.
Nice! These items can be recycled: Paper greeting cards and envelopes, paper gift bags, plain wrapping paper (without glitter or foil), cardboard shipping boxes.
Good to do, always:
