Progressives Grinches Now Want To Ban Wrapping Paper

Now wrapping paper is considered evil by progressives.
Huffington Post reporter Kate Bratskeir wrote about the dangers of wrapping paperbecause it is frequently not recyclable.
It’s time to do away with wrapping paper, once and for all, and here’s why: Most wrapping paper is not recycled (and much of it can’t be), so it ends up in landfills.
A lot of the paper you might think is recyclable is actually lined with plastic, according to Going Zero Waste’s Kathryn Kellogg.
Do you like decorations and artistic flourishes on your presents? Well, be selective. “If it has glitter or tape, it’s not recyclable,” Celia Ristow of Litterless told HuffPost.
Glitter-encrusted paper is especially terrible for a couple of reasons. It can’t be recycled, for one. What’s more, glitter is made from teensy pieces of plastic that not only appear in your hair weeks later but also pollute the oceans, according to National Geographic. Marine animals often ingest these little specks, and over time, collect them in their stomachs, which can be fatal.
And wait until you see what she wants to replace it with.
No one’s life is substantially better-served with wrapping paper. OK, it looks cheery and festive. But there are plenty of cheaper alternatives.
“I still wrap most of my gifts in brown paper saved from packages,” said Ristow. “Despite our best efforts, we’re going to order stuff online and it’ll come with, at best, paper.”
Kellogg agreed that brown paper can be made into a beautiful wrapping option, especially when spruced up with a sprig of evergreen, a dehydrated orange slice of a stick of cinnamon (and then you have the added bonus of scented gift wrap). With this option, “you still get the feeling of getting to rip through paper,” Kellogg said, with the ability to recycle when you’re done…
Beyond reused paper, you can get creative with your wrapping vessel. Tie up items in a tea towel or scarf, making the cloth a part of the present. Use old newspaper or magazine cutouts, and make wrapping an event, said Kellogg: “If I had children, I think it would be a lot of fun as a family tradition to draw on paper.”
As Ristow pointed out, this doesn’t have to be an all-or-nothing option. “Part of the fun of wrapping is the chance to get creative, but that doesn’t always have to involve materials that’ll end up in the landfill,” she said. “We have a lot more opportunity to keep the joy without the environmental cost.”
These people take the fun out of everything.
There is nothing that makes people festive that progressives do not have an issue with.
Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer?
Nope. Bullying.
Baby It’s Cold Outside?
Nope. Date rape.
And now wrapping paper.
