One small and fun way to reduce your impact on the environment at Christmas time is to forget plastic and even paper Christmas wrapping; Furoshiki is the ancient Japanese art of using cloth to wrap gifts and just about anything else you'd like. All you need is a scarf or piece of fabric, which can become part of the gift, or reused by the recipient next time they give you something! It's a lovely circular way of gift giving.
