Reusing Materials for Gift Wrapping

This project is intended to target the Holiday season and will consist of volunteers who will wrap presents with magazines or newspapers on McMaster University campus. The purpose of this project is to spread awareness of waste created from gift wrap and to promote sustainable methods of gift wrapping. Old issues of newspapers/magazines will be collected by volunteers on campus. Gift wrapping will hopefully occur at least once a week and for a few hours per week. 

This project will start mid- to late- November 2014 and end in mid-December 2014. This project is currently supported by OPIRG (Ontario Public Interest Research Group). Please contact Jane Zhang at if you are interested in volunteering. 

Here is how the gifts look like when wrapped with magazines:
