The Problem with Plastic
In the UK, around 1.2. billion metres of cling film is used each year. This staggering figure roughly equates to 740,000 miles, which is the equivalent of travelling the entire length of Great Britain 846 times!
The main issue with cling film is its difficulty to recycle and the amount of energy and resources wasted to recycle this single use plastic.
The Solution – Re-Usable Vegan Wax Wraps
Vegan wax wraps are re-usable, bio-degradable and are an eco-friendly alternative to plastic cling film.
Most vegan wax wraps are made with a tree resin (for anti-bacterial properties), jojoba oil (for anti-fungal properties), natural cotton and soy wax. In addition, soy wax is a renewable resource, meaning vegan wax wraps are an environmentally sustainable kitchen product.
All these wonderful ingredients make for a re-usable, clingy, flexible and self-sticking food wrap.
You can also re-fresh your wraps with wax bars whenever you need to! If cared for properly, a single wax wrap can last you for up to a year or more!
Although cling film may be saving your leftovers, it certainly isn’t saving the planet.
Vegan wax wraps are one of the easiest plastic-free swaps Ecohumans can make in the kitchen.
Let’s be kind to our kitchen and our planet!
