One of our favorite holidays is upon us, Earth Day. In the spirit of celebrating nature's beauty and doing a some good for the environment we reached out to the creative community to participate in our third annual Earth Day Design Contest. This year we dived into an Ocean of Delight design theme, in hopes to bring your marine fantasies to life. In return for each valid entry, we pledged a $10 donation to Ocean Conservancy, a hardworking environmental nonprofit working to restore our beloved ocean habitats, allowing marine life to thrive.
The submissions are in! Imagine wrapping your next gift in one of these adorable sea-inspired patterns. Which are your favorites? You and all your friends (so be sure to spread the word!) are invited to vote through April 28. The crowd-favorites will be announced May 1.

Giving back doesn’t stop there; on top of our pledge to Ocean Conservancy we've offered our winning designers the chance to name their own favorite eco-charity to receive 5% of the online sales of their winning Wrappily wrapping paper.
We would like to thank all the artists who took the time to enter our design contest. This year we heard from talented designers from as far away as Australia, Colombia, Germany, and right here in our own sunny back yard of Hawaii.
We’re one step closer new Wrappily print! Before voting take a closer look at this year’s submissions and artist's comments below.

Eco-friendly and adorably chic, Wrappily uses neighborhood newspaper presses to print great patterns on 100% recyclable and compostable newsprint—an answer to the millions of tons of trash attributed to wrapping paper every year. This smart, new take on wrapping paper is an idea who's time has come. Our founder set out on her mission to green-up giving in 2013, a journey filled with marvelously talented people who are creating amazing patterns for our wrapping paper. After all, we believe in beautifully wrapped gifts, but not at the expense of the environment.
