  • Eco-Friendly Alternatives to Wrapping Paper 更环保的包装纸的替代品 Look around your house and you'll discover all kinds of ways to wrap presents beautifully with less waste. 环顾你的房子,你会发现各种各样的方法来包装漂亮的礼物来使浪费更少。 Pogonici / Getty Images A friend messaged me last week to ask about green alternatives to wrapping paper. "I haven’t wrapped anything yet and refuse to buy paper," she wrote. "I thought of old newspaper, but it is ugly, and brown paper bags are still wasteful. I might have to use an old newspaper and tell the kids Santa made a conscious choice this year not to waste."上周,一位朋友给我发短信,询问关于包装纸的绿色替代品。她写道:“我还没把任何东西都包起来,我拒绝买纸。”“我想到了旧报纸,但它很难看,棕色纸袋仍然很浪费。我可能得拿张旧报纸告诉孩子们,圣诞老人今年不浪费是一个明智的选择。” But what other options exist? Here are some ideas, based on Internet research, conversations with friends, and ideas of my own. The key to success, of course, is planning in advance. 但是还有其他的选择吗?以下是一些基于网络调查、与朋友的交谈以及我自己的想法的想法。当然,成功的关键是提前计划。 1. Fabric 织物 You can do a lot with fabric. Think scarves, tea towels, handkerchiefs, large napkins, all of which can serve as a bonus gift. Many of these can be found at very little cost at a thrift store. If the piece of cloth is big enough, use a funky furoshiki-style knot to fasten it. 你可以用布料做很多事情。考虑一下围巾、茶巾、手帕、大餐巾,所有这些都可以作为额外的礼物。这些东西很多都能在二手店以很低的价格买到。如果布料足够大,用一个时髦的furoshiki风格的结将其固定。 2. Old Maps and Newspapers 旧地图和报纸 My uncle used to have a huge collection of old National Geographic magazines and each one seemed to come with a map. Now when I think about it, those would make fantastic wrappings for gifts. They're out of date, not really used anymore, and have that beautiful vintage look that everyone's going so crazy for on Instagram these days. 我叔叔以前收集了大量的旧的国家地理杂志,每一本杂志似乎都附有一张地图。现在我想起来了,这些可以作为礼物的很好的包装材料。它们已经过时了,不再被真正使用了,但它们有着漂亮的复古外观,如今每个人都在Instagram上为之疯狂。 3. Other Papers 其他材料的纸 Parchment paper is light and white, yet opaque enough that a person wouldn't be able to see through to the gift. Tape does not stick to it easily, so you can salvage the paper post-unwrapping and reuse it for baking. Wax paper could do the job, too. As much as possible, reuse paper you already have, like used envelopes in different sizes or brown paper bags (they really can look lovely!). 羊皮纸是轻而白的,但又不透明,人看不透礼物。胶带不容易粘在上面,所以你可以在打开包装后回收纸张,重新使用烘焙蜡纸也可以。尽可能地重复使用你已有的纸,比如不同大小的用过的信封或棕色纸袋(它们看起来真的很可爱!)4. Cloth Produce Bags 布袋 Pass on the gift of reusable produce bags by wrapping a present in one. Whether it's a store-bought drawstring bag or a simple handmade bag with a ribbon to tie it shut, you can't go wrong with this option. 把可重复使用的袋子作为礼物送给别人。无论是从商店里买来的拉绳包,还是简单的手工制作的用缎带系上的包,这种选择都不会出错。 5.Baskets 篮子 Baskets are super cheap at thrift stores and highly practical. Buy a basket that suits the size of your gift and the recipient will be able to enjoy it as well. 篮子在旧货店超级便宜而且非常实用。买一个适合你礼物大小的篮子,收礼人也会喜欢它。 6. Boxes 盒子 Do not overlook the humble box. With the amount of online shopping that happens these days, there's a good chance you have a stash of boxes somewhere in the house, awaiting recycling pickup. Use these to hold gifts, and dress them up with paint, twine, evergreen boughs, or fabric ribbons. 不要忽视不起眼的盒子。随着如今网上购物的增多,你很有可能在家里的某个地方藏了一大堆箱子,等待回收。用它们来装礼物,用颜料、线、常青树树枝或织物丝带装饰它们。
