Did you know most wrapping paper, gift bags and bows are not recyclable? Did you know Americans produce an extra 1 million tons of trash each week between Thanksgiving and New Year's? There is a simple solution that can still offer the same "wow" effect of those purchased disposable products. Four Rivers is hosting an all-day event that will arm you with the DIY know-how to create wrapping paper, bags, bows and gift cards – all from leftover materials. You can drop in anytime to learn some new ideas to make green gift wrapping a part of your holiday season. No experience is necessary but finger dexterity is required along with the ability to read and follow step-by-step instructions. The program is held indoors in an accessible facility. Ages 16 or older. No registrations required.
