According to Gift Bags Gone Green every year Americans spend more than $5 billion dollars on gift wrap, bags, and tissue paper of which the majority ends up in landfills.
To offer a unique and green approach to the gift wrap industry Gift Bags Gone Green have created fun and funky fabric gift bags that are washable and reusable. The bags are not only green because they are reusable but they are made from upcycled, reused, and vintage fabrics.
These bags are not mass produced, once a fabric design is used up their will be no more bags of that design. Gift Bags Gone Green make use of fabrics that are readily available and have been discarded including fabric remnants.
Gift Bags Gone Green was created to make a difference while brightening the lives of others through gift giving. You can reduce your carbon imprint while making someone else smile.
What a super simple concept turned into a fabulous green business.
Another product that really makes me wish I could sew.

Cool idea. I love the traditional Japanese way of wrapping gifts in fabric, too– here’s a guide to doing that: http://blog.makezine.com/archive/2006/11/how_to_use_furoshiki_clot.html
I also make reusable gift bags from hemp/cotton. These ones have a Christmas theme. You can check them out at:http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=31678999
We’ve been saving and reusing gift bags and paper for years. Hadn’t thought of the cloth ones. You could add some tie-died ebellishments or art designs with fabric acrylic to jazz them up. I like it!
