Haverford, PA, — VZWraps, makers of reusable cloth gift bags, has launched a new website — http://www.VZWraps.com — in time for the busiest gift-giving season of the year. VZWraps are a time-saving, fashionable, and environmentally-
friendly way to wrap gifts. According to the Clean Air Council, an additional 5 million tons of waste is generated in the U.S. during the holidays. Four million tons of this is wrapping paper and shopping bags. With VZWraps reusable fabric gift bags there is no trash left behind.
“Our new site allows the environmentally-
conscious consumer to easily choose from dozens of fabrics and several sizes of cloth gift bags for any gift-giving occasion. We have bags specifically for birthdays, Christmas, and Hanukkah, but most of our bags are suitable for several occasions to maximize their reusability,”
says Isabelle Vesey, founder of VZWraps.
VZWraps offer a unique alternative to wrapping paper, can be reused countless times, keeping rolls and rolls of wrapping paper out of landfills — paper that often can’t be recycled because it is dyed or laminated, contains non-paper additives, or is too thin to have good-quality fibers (earth911.com)
. Reusable gift bags make gift wrapping much easier, especially for clam-shell packaging, and create a unique presentation.
There are five sizes of VZWraps:
the mini, which can hold a gift card or something small like jewelry,
a wine bottle bag, which can also be used to wrap a scarf, body lotions or cosmetics
the standard 10” x 15” bag
a medium 17” x 19” bag
and large, which can be either 20” x 27” or 21” x 24” depending on the fabric.
The bags are made from 100% cotton and the sizes are based on no-waste cutting, so that all the fabric is used leaving no scraps behind. Most of the ribbons are made in the USA, primarily from recycled materials. There is eco-grosgrain, made from 100% recycled plastic bottles, and eco-satin, made from 100% post-consumer recycled polyester.
