An Earth Day Furochic Giveaway!

by DanicasDaily on April 22, 2010

Happy 40th Earth Day All! 

I hope you all are having a FANTASTIC day and doing a few things to be greener.  I wanted to kick off my Earth Day Giveaways with something fun, something a little different…something that is SO COOL!

Have you all ever heard of Furochic’s? 

Last year on Earth Day, I was introduced to Furochic’s by LA FUJI MAMA and completely fell IN LOVE with them!  Furochic, is a line of reusable fabric gift wrap inspired by furoshiki, designed by Jenn Playford of Jenny Wren Paperie.

I love the idea of reducing our waste caused by disposable packaging by using a reusable cloth. If you’ve never tried a wrapping cloth, you should! The possibilities and uses are endless

Wrapping a gift has never been so easy, eco-friendly and beautiful! Furochic™, printed with Jenn’s original patterns, is inspired by furoshiki, the traditional Japanese wrapping cloth. Furochic™ is part of the gift; it can be reused to wrap another gift or kept and treasured. Reduce waste and have fun! No scissors or tape required.

Jenn has created a bunch of videos on her site to help give you all ideas on how to use your Furochic ~ Click HERE to check them. 

For those looking for more FUN ideas, She has a book out called Wrapogami that features 25 different wrapping techniques, ideas for reusing your wraps, tips for choosing or making a wrap, a history of Furochic and furoshiki, and gift tips to make your gifts special.
