Reusing Amazon Gift Bags

We are upcycling, reusing, repurposing, recycling all Amazon style gift bags throughout the year!

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?

👉 This is a year round venture, not just for Christmas 👈

Whilst we are continuing to accept all Amazon style gift bags, now that we are back up and running, we have a greater need for bags of the following size as they have proved to be in high demand:
  • 29cm x 23.5cm approx.
  • 37cm x 26cm approx.

We want to reuse / recycle / upcycle 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:
  • Accept other fabric gift bags that have not come from Amazon, as long as they haven't been personalised.
  • 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.
