Reusing Amazon Gift Bags

Plus other fabric gift bags

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 or in recyclable / fabric gift bags. If you receive a gift wrapped by Amazon or in such a bag, 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

We are looking for following sizes as they are in such high demand and used far more regularly than any other sizes:

  • 19.5cm x 15.5cm approx.
  • 29cm x 23.5cm approx.
  • 37cm x 26cm approx.

We can no longer accept sizes other than those listed above.

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 work-shoppers to 'gift wrap' something they created as a gift at one of our workshops or classes.
  • Enabling our work-shoppers 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 and are fabric.
  • 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.

The Amazon gift bags are made of 100% recycled material (RPET) and are reusable.

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 work-shoppers immensely and will also to reduce any potential waste by reusing them.

Before you forward your generous donations please can you de-personalise them by removing all gift tags?

Please ensure you package you donation of gift bags so they fit through a letter box, try it with your own letter box first.

If your package will fit through a letterbox please forward them to this address.

On the rare occasion where the package will not fit through your own letterbox, please contact us for a more suitable address. There may be a delay with replies, please be patient.

Total gift bags saved from landfill to date:

Each one has been generously donated to Taff Rocks.
