I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and wanted to give you all a quick update on this week’s green task. For those just joining us, my wife assigns me a green challenge every week and this week’s challenge is to recycle wrapping paper. This weekend is turning out to be very hectic because of a massive snow storm (we just got stuck pulling into our driveway), family fun (getting to spend some great time with our families) and general Christmas chaos…. So it is going to be a little short. So, we have now harvested most of the wrapping paper we will accumulate.
We ended up leaving the fam’s house a bit earlier than expected that night and think we may have a bag or two left to collect, but other than that, we have all of the paper goods at our home. As expected, we have a large amount of paper and we are not quite sure what the heck we are going to do.
About 14 garbage bags… 14 whole bags of wrapping paper. We have gone through one bag and we were able to redeem about half of it as wrapping paper that we can use in the future. If this rate continues, we will have 7 bags of unusable wrapping paper. I will keep you updated on what happens. Please let me know if you have any suggestions in the comments area below.
