What a waste!
Wrapping paper and shopping bags alone account for about 4 million tons of trash annually in the U.S. alone.
Around the world
Over the holidays, about 227,000 miles worth of wrapping paper get thrown away—enough to circle the world 9 times!
Unacceptable. Most wrapping paper cannot be recycled because it's dyed, laminated, or contains non-paper additives.
