The amount of garbage created in a post-birthday party present opening melee is enough to make any eco-conscious parent shutter. The ripped wrapping paper and character-designed gift bags add up to a recycling mom's nightmare. Enter Simply Re-Gift It, a line of gift bags, personalized by children and designed to teach tots about the eco-friendly practice of reusing.
The company's Friendship Gift Bags ($8 each) come with blank spaces for lil ones to color and personalize, as well as a unique registration number used to track the bag's journey as it moves from one recipient to the next. As the bag is passed on, each recipient is instructed to color in another portion of the bag and add their own personal message. Once it has traveled to three people, a label can be printed to mail the design portion of the bag back to the company and each of the previous gift-givers will receive an email with photos of the final design.
