Plastic Wrap An easy to eliminate single-use plastic

The plastic wrap that saves your sandwich, but pollutes the planet!

Much like plastic bags, plastic wrap is hard to recycle. It is so thin and bendy it clogs the machines.

In 2017, 700,000 food wrappers were found at beach clean ups according to Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup 2017 Report

Over 1.2 billion metres of plastic wrap is used each year in the UK.

Plastic wrap takes hundreds of years to break down yet we only use it for a few hours.

But there are super easy ways to remove plastic wrap from your home!

Beeswax wraps are a simple alternative and you can make your own very easily!

Or to store your food you can use reusable containers.

Cover your leftovers in the fridge with a plate.

At potlucks, cover your dish with a tea towel to transport it.

Or buy a glass bowl with a lid.

There is no need for plastic wrap in your kitchen!

Take part in this years Plastic Free July Challenge and see how much plastic you can choose to refuse!
