Rethink single use items when covering food and drinks! For storing leftovers, covering open cans of pet food, or carrying coffee on the go, reusable lids are a great alternative to the disposable kind.
Single use lids and covers, whether metal, plastic or paper, are often not recycled and end up in landfills. Reusable lids, made of dishwasher-safe silicone, can save you money and reduce waste. They are flexible, durable, and BPA-free, and are available in a variety of sizes online or in eco-conscious retail stores.
Another tip is to swap your plastic wrap or foil for beeswax food wrap. Made from cotton infused with beeswax, it’s washable, reusable for up to a year, and compostable. In addition to being planet-friendly, beeswax wrap is more “breathable” than plastic and will keep foods like bread, cheese, and produce fresher for longer, saving you money!
