Keep baby (and the world) green by cutting out gift wrap! Presents off infant registries are often covered in luxurious paper with enough bows to decorate a nursery. Take a cue from green bridal registries and ask friends and family to send their gifts just the way they bought them. You can make this request by adding a note to the bottom of your registry like this one: "In order to keep our home as green and waste-free as possible, we prefer no gift wrapping or special boxes." Aside from helping keep the house clutter-free, other expectant mamas may follow your lead.
