Reusing Amazon Gift Bags


Image credit: Amazon

Many of us receive our birthday, festive or others gifts from Amazon. If you receive a gift wrapped by Amazon, or maybe you already have and you don't want the gift bag they / it arrives in, would you consider donating it / them to us?

We want to reuse your bags and prevent them ending up in landfill.

Our plans for them include:
  • The creation of board-type games that can be used in our workshops
  • Allowing our workshoppers to 'gift wrap' something they created as a gift at a workshop.
  • Enabling our workshoppers to carry home a number of items they have created when they have forgotten to bring their own bag.
  • Individually pack and sanitise resources to be used at workshops.

We will also re-accept bags already given out at workshops until such a time that they cannot be used any longer. We will then send these for recycling.

At each stage, they will be cleaned and sanitised so they are safe to be reused.

Donating the gift bags to us benefit us and our workshoppers immensely and will also to reduce any potential waste by reusing them.

Each one has been generously donated to Taff Rocks.
We thank you all ever so much!

We will continue to accept your unwanted gift bags even outside of the festive season.
