It’s a Wrap: Creative Green Gift Wrapping Ideas

1 4

This week is all about avoiding the traditional wrapping paper (saving a couple of trees and keeping it out of landfills!) and going with all the bits and pieces of left-over, re-purposed stuff around the house.

Because I’ve been buying coffee in 1-pound cans, I had several lying around, and it occurred to me I could use them to wrap some gifts.

I save all kinds of ribbons, paper, beads and they live in a little corner of my office. Whenever I need some embellishments, there they are … and not just for the holidays. I go to my stash all year round.

Unacceptable Levels

Unacceptable Levels examines the results of the chemical revolution of the 1940s through the eyes of affable filmmaker Ed Brown, a father seeking to understand the world in which he and his wife are raising their children. To create this debut documentary, one man and his camera traveled extensively to find and interview top minds in the fields of science, advocacy, and law. Weaving their testimonies into a compelling narrative, Brown presents us with the story of how the chemical revolution brought us to where we are, and of where, if we’re not vigilant, it may take us.

Beauty and the Breast

“A first time documentary filmmaker offers a compelling insight into a devastating reality of breast cancer, as seen through the eyes of several female patients helping demystify the disease while painting poignant and often humorous intimate portraits of survival. The film depicts the process of learning and accepting the terrifying verdict, and details the complexities of every stage of this disease. All interviewed patients have different experiences living with mutilated bodies while still maintaining strength. This film is not only invaluable as a testament to human resilience but it also proves that it’s possible to blossom in the face of adversity. But as the fight continues, the wisdom and beauty within us can help us conquer the beast until we find the cure.”
