There are far better choices for covering food in containers than plastic food wrap, which is non-recyclable and non-renewable. Made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC), the material ends up in landfills and oceans where it is likely to stay a long time.
Excellent container cover options include:
- Beeswax based covers made from from an organic muslin cloth that’s coated in beeswax, jojoba oil and tree resin.
- Silicone lids seal airtight on all smooth rimmed stainless steel, wood, glass, plastic and ceramic containers and they are microwave safe. They can also cover pots and pans to retain heat or contain splatters.
- Shower cap food covers.
- Plates or cloth wraps.
- Glass dishes with lids.
You can save time and money, while helping our environment, by using any of these excellent alternatives to plastic wrap.
