A Sustainable Option
Homegrown Wrappings is committed to gifting without needless waste. We 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
Homegrown Wrappings is a member of Plant Chicago's Circular Economy Leadership Network, which means we have connected with managers, owners, and creatives in a number of industries in the Chicagoland area.
Through this leadership network, we have committed to provide earth-friendly waste streams for hard to recycle items, such as cork, #6 plastic rigid cups, and certain office supplies. We aim to continue expanding this list, and we want you to contribute! Contact us to make an appointment, or stop by the shop on Fridays between 10am and 6pm.
We are a sponsor of the Plant Chicago and Chicago Green Theatre Alliance's
Multi-Drive and Swap Event on June 5 - National Environment Day!

What We're Accepting
Recycling Isn't Free!
We use donated funds to ship our collected recyclables to the processing facilities, to start and maintain new waste streams, and to offset our carbon footprint in all things shipping!
Take a look below for some of our favorite businesses, non-profits and organizations that are doing excellent work in other fields of greening.
