540,000 tons of gift wrap and gift bags are thrown away every year in Canada.
Most times, metallic wrapping paper, pull bows, tape, gift bags, and decorative ribbons can’t be recycled and end up in the trash.
12% of all fabricated textiles end up in landfills before being used, making this industry one of the most polluting in the world.
This reality will remain the elephant in the room until we find real solutions... and we have one!
WHY CHOOSE NEXT CHANCE?
Reinventing gift wrapping, one durable product at a time!
After thorough research and multiple failed attempts to find durable alternatives to conventional gift wrapping, we set a goal for ourselves: find a solution and make a durable difference. That’s how Next Chance came to be!
MEET THE ENTHUSIASTIC INDIVIDUALS BEHIND NEXT CHANCE
“At Next Chance, we envision a better, more durable world. This passion project quickly grew into a small business and a life mission.” - Gabrielle Huppé, co - founder
“Every year, we consume more resources than Earth can produce. With that in mind, Next Chance is on a mission to help build a brighter and greener future.” - Maude Girard, co - founder
We manufacture sustainably for responsible consumers.
Our team ruled out the use of new textiles to solve the single - use wrapping paper prob lem. Solving a problem by creating a new one is not sustainable. Instead, we took inspiration from the circular economy to create the first - ever reusable gift wraps 100% locally sourced!
It made sense to make reusable gift wraps using salvaged textiles sourced from local businesses. This solution aligned with our goal to reduce waste all while reviving new, unsold, unused, thrown - away textiles. Our thoughtful process turned into innovative products, allowing you to enjoy the beloved tradition of unwrappin g gifts in a new sustainable way!
PRACTICALLY, HOW DOES IT WORK?
AKA Our Manufacturing Process
Since 2020, salvaged materials used to manufacture our beautiful gift wraps are sourced through local big - box stores, industries, and Canadian designers.
Our collections/products are available in an ever - growing selection of colours and sizes , and every collection we release is unique and specially designed to wrap up all your loose ends!
