Reduce your use of clingfilm

Here’s what’s left of today’s lunch packaging. Previously I’d have used clingfilm, but this morning I wrapped my sandwich in paper. Aren’t I good?

Perhaps not as it turns out. MyZeroWaste suggests that:

Unbleached parchment paper can be re-used and recycled. Greaseproof paper cannot be recycled and is bleached with chemicals. check out Natural Collection for parchment paper made from unbleached paper with a silicone coating. This avoids the usual chemical compounds found in other types of greaseproof paper.

Well, I can’t remember exactly what type of paper it was – I just grabbed it from the kitchen drawer and felt smug about not using clingfilm for a change!! My picture does look rather white though so I can imagine bleach was indeed involved. Time to buy some of this…

And of course, I’m chucking it in the recycling bin, but a better route would be to use the same thing every day and not chuck it everyday. Amazon has a range of products that solve the problem. I particularly like the look of these reusable, eco-aware food snack wraps from WrapEats
