Are you planning a Green Christmas?

And, no, I am talking about grass! Many of us are making big changes to how we gift this year. The Climate Crisis is top of mind for many of us and here, at The Village Quire, we want you to know we have festive options for the upcoming gifting season!

Doesn’t this blanket scarf make an adorable and cozy gift wrap?  We have tied it up in a gorgeous satin bow. 

Looking for more paper-free alternatives? We also have cute Dino Tea Towels and handmade Japenese Knot Bags. Both offer up an incredible aesthetic while also being kind to the earth.

If environmentally-friendly wrapping paper is what you are after, then you should know much of the printed rolled wrapping paper we stock is FSC Certified. If you aren’t already in the know, FSC stands for Forest Stewardship Council. The Council is a world leader that works to promote the practice of sustainable forestry worldwide. 

Waste Not Paper (many of you know it’s a retail store, PaperSource) is a company that roots itself in eco-friendly paper products. The rolled wrap we stock from WNP is all milled in North America using renewable energy sources. I can’t get enough of this simple look.

Head to our online shop ( https://villagequire.ca/shop/ ) to purchase today and pick up in store. Or pop by the next time you come to Westboro Village and grab the wrap you need to make it a green Christmas this year!
