Low-Waste Gift Bows

Be kind to the planet and your loved ones in equal measure with these eco-friendly compostable gift bows. Most holiday bows are made of plastic. This year, go the sustainable route with this set made with natural fiber cotton yarn and brightly-colored with water-based dyes. Each bow has a special adhesive, allowing you to stick it right onto the outside of the gift. Reuse these bows for years to come, then compost the ribbon at the end of its life.

 Includes 5 bows.
