Don’t Burn that Wrapping Paper in the Fireplace

by Alan Eggleston

A little public service announcement for the holidays:

Many of us are tempted to burn holiday wrapping paper in the fireplace or wood-burning stove after opening gifts. I know I did when we had the warmth of a good fire going and a pile of papers to dispose of. However, doing some research, I’ve found that’s not the wisest decision.

At first, I thought it was only certain papers – specially coated papers, for instance. Now I find that it involves all wrapping paper.

Read about it here.

The best advice is to simply reuse, recycle, or trash the paper.

Enjoy the holidays!
