Every year 6 million tonnes of rubbish is dumped into the ocean world wide, 80% of which is plastic. Aust ralians use 1.3 million tonnes of plastic each year and while we recycle 46% over half ends up in landfill. Majority of plastic waste is made up of food packaging and plastic bags. If we can reduce our use of plastic we are one step closer to a cleaner greener planet.
We discovered these food wraps a few months ago at one of Melbourne's markets and it was love at first sight. Not only are they super good looking - they come in a gazillion different awesome prints and it took us ages to choose! - they also helped us chuck out that god awful cling wrap that we can't get off the roll anyway and do our little bit to save the planet. And once we started using them we realised that when wrapped in these little goodies, our leftovers stay fresh heaps longer! Major bonus points - this got even the toughest Food Rep in our household convinced!
With a little love your wrap should last up to a year and then you can recycle it in the compost.
Note: every pack of Sustainable Wraps is different and prints may be different to the wraps in the pictures.
