“To me, surfing and being environmentally conscience go hand-and-hand.  To be respectful, aware and deliberate towards something that gives us so much should be a forethought, not afterthought, for everything we do.  I was stoked to think of this new way to keep trash out of our ocean.

We were finishing up some spring cleaning around the apartment and had some magazines that needed to be retired (aka recycled). At the same time, we needed some wrapping paper for a few presents for family members, but didn’t have any laying around the house, or newspapers to use (we wrote a past article about re-purposing newspapers here.

Always looking to re-purpose and create less trash, my fellow WYD co-founder and I came up with another solution to accomplish this in a creative way.  We clipped some of our favorite photos from a retired surf magazine and used them as artful wrapping paper.

The “gift wrap” really adds life and a personal touch to our present and we found that our receivers were just as excited about the wrapping paper as they were the gift .  A win-win for everyone!”

Remember, a small action can have a BIG impact.
