Earth Love'n Wrapping Paper Review and Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed.

Last Christmas I discovered a wonderfully Green gift wrapping company called Earth Love'n and was excited about trying out their gift wrap paper(Click HERE to read my review from last year).
Meet Caren, the very nice owner of Earth Love'n and read how this wonderful company came about:
The idea for Earth Love'n Gift Wrap came to me while searching for a better product to sell at my daughter's elementary school fundraiser. I was tired of the usual candy and cookie dough fundraisers, and wanted something that would reflect the school's emphasis on being good stewards of the environment. Having worked as an environmental professional for 20 years, I wanted a useful, earth-friendly product. Recycled wrapping paper seemed like the perfect solution... except that I couldn't find the product. During my search, I learned that over 90% of printing and writing paper in the USA is made from virgin tree fiber. I also learned that making paper using recycled fiber instead of virgin fiber has enormous environmental benefits. No new trees are cut down, less energy and water are used, and less pollution is produced (including greenhouse gas emissions). So... I formed Earth Love'n Paper Products. I hope our playful designs bring a smile to your face.

Did you know that during the winter holidays, 4 million tons of wrapping paper and shopping bags are thrown away.

Gasp! I can't even comprehend that amount of waste!

During the first print-run of Earth Love’n Gift Wrap they used 4,000 lbs of post-consumer paper which means that approximately 118 trees were saved, over 2,000 lbs of emissions did not go into the atmosphere, and 4,000 lbs of solid waste was not generated! Yaa Earth Love'n!

• 100% post-consumer fiber
• Processed chlorine-free premium quality paper
• Vegetable-based ink
• Cut lines on reverse side(My favorite feature!)
• Lovingly packaged by adults with developmental challenges
• Made in the U.S.A.
• Environmental information on reverse side
• For every 10 PACKAGES/ROLLS of gift wrap sold, Earth Love'n will PLANT 1 TREE through their partnership with Trees for the Future
• Made with Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified paper
• Certified chlorine-free by the Chlorine Free Products Association
• Paper is made with certified renewable energy by the Green-e organization

In addition to all the cute Christmas paper Earth Love'n sells, they also have:
  • Birthday, Baby, Wedding, and All Occasion Wrapping Paper

  • Thank you, Note, and Enclosure Cards

  • Apparel Boxes (Recycled of course)
  • Recycled Tissue Paper
  • Natural Ribbon
