A Sustainable Option

Homegrown Wrappings is committed to gifting without needless waste. I put in the work to repair, renovate, and sanitize each piece of "junk" and send it off to a new home, continuing its tangible adventure.

No one-person can save the world, but we can all do a little better. If you are ready to send a gift that holds sustainability in its heart, click below!

The Circular Economy

Adapted by Plant Chicago from PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency. themasites.pbl.nl/circular-economy/

Homegrown Wrappings is a member of Plant Chicago's Circular Economy Leadership Network, which means I have connected with managers, owners, and creatives in a number of industries in the Chicagoland area.

While the physical storefront was operational in Rogers Park, I provided earth-friendly waste streams for hard to recycle items, including wine corks, #6 plastic rigid cups, and certain office/art supplies.  

See below for other great resources to expand your recycling efforts!


I am always interested in promoting collection events, so let me know about them!
