Au revoir plastic wrap

Very few things seem as irreplaceable as plastic wrap. Especially Glad Press’n Seal around the holidays with its adorable prints and a go-anywhere, stay-sealed functionality. But here you go, a viable, if expensive alternative, because you can’t give up plastic unless you part with your plastic wrap.

I bought a set of these organic reusable beeswax wraps with a cotton storage bag off of Amazon — four altogether in three sizes — for $22.23 with free shipping.

If using these wraps goes well, I will likely spring for a few more, but I have to tell you they are an investment. They are supposed to last about a year, though I don’t know how many uses I’ll be able to get out of each one. Here’s a link to another brand, package of nine for a whopping $44.95: Link: Organic Reusable Food Wraps by Etee – Biodegradable, Non-Toxic & Plastic Free via @amazon

I still have two rolls of Press’n Seal and some Saran wrap in my cupboard, which I imagine will still go on plates of cookies and whatnot that go to work, pitch-ins, etc. But it feels good to have an alternative for covering up my leftover oatmeal, etc., and to keep a little more plastic out of the waste stream.
