Posted by Admin, With 0 Comments, Views 1

Food Storage Plastic cling wrap is a staple item in most homes. Many products are pre-packed using it, too. Alternatives exist that are just as effective, and more sustainable. What you can do Avoid cling wrap How can you do it There are many fantastic alternatives to plastic cling wrap that you can use to reduce plastic pollution. Storing and packing food in reusable containers is a great start. You can also purchase reusable silicone bowl toppers to cover food in bowls, pots and pans, or even get crafty with an upside down plate, reusable cloth cover or wax wrap. Wax wraps and containers make a great, reusable alternative for wrapping sandwiches. You can also buy reusable washable cloth bags to store and pack food in, as a better option to zip lock bags. It goes beyond your own home, though; you can make an impact by avoiding food that’s pre-packed in cling wrap and choosing an alternative product instead. Taking the next steps If you’re feeling crafty, go the next step by making your own wax wraps and covers. Or, source them from small local businesses to minimize pollution from travel. You can also encourage and support food businesses to avoid cling wrap by discussing alternatives and directing them to the Plastic Free July website. It’s also important to stay educated. Before buying something new, be sure to check reviews and facts to see how sustainable they really are. The impact Reduce plastic waste and the use of our natural resources in creating it. Prevent the chance of lightweight cling wrap blowing into our natural surroundings, where it will stay forever. Protect our wildlife who can mistake plastic as food.
