Warm up any gifting occasion with this sunny cactus motif created by Heleen van der Thillart. Hard to say what we love more about these patterns—the friendly, fun cactus shapes or the feathery jewel-toned watercolors. Watercolor Cactus was a crowd-favorite in our 2016 Earth Day Design Contest.
We believe in beautifully wrapped gifts but not at the expense of the environment. Wrappily offers a new take on wrapping paper. Using neighborhood printing presses, great patterns are printed on 100% recycled, recyclable and compostable newsprint—an answer to the millions of tons of trash generated by wrapping paper every year. This paper is reversible, offering two complementary patterns per sheet.
We invite you to make one small change that will make a big difference: Gift happily with Wrappily.

WHAT DOES IT REPLACE?
MOST GIFT WRAP. WHY? Most wrapping paper cannot be recycled because it's dyed, laminated, or contains non-paper additives. Over the holidays alone, about 227,000 miles worth of wrapping paper get thrown away—enough to circle the world 9 times! If the only eco-friendly change you make in your world is choosing eco-wrap, what a difference you'd make!

ABOUT THE COMPANY
Wrap, rip, recycle! Wrappily is a sustainably smart, new take on wrapping paper. Using neighborhood newspaper presses, Wrappily takes great patterns and prints them on recycled, premium-grade newsprint. 100% compostable and recyclable newsprint is an answer to over four million of tons of trash every year attributed to gift wrap and bags ever year.
Burdened with guilt and belief that a better solution existed combined with a life-long love of old fashioned printing presses and a decade of experience in the printing industry, Sara started Wrappily in 2013. Her mission: to answer a global need for a smarter, more sustainable gift wrap. Wrappily is headquartered on Maui though all of the paper is milled, printed, and packaged in Washington State.
Wrappily further works to green-up giving with an annual design contest that takes the company's mission even further. With ‘we love nature’ as a rallying cry, Wrappily encourages artists and designers from around the globe to submit nature-inspired patterns. During the week of Earth Day, the Wrappily community votes on their favorite designs, determining the winning patterns that will go to press and be added to our shop. The intent is to fund both global and local environmental nonprofit agencies that are on the ground doing great work.
