This week for Change the world wednesday, we had to take a look at our plastic wrap / clingfilm and aluminium foil use.
You might remember I felt I was ok with this: I don’t buy clingfilm at all, and gave some simple tips on how you could reduce the amount of clingfilm you use.
My challenge was with my once weekly baking session for a friend.
I had found myself in the habit of using new plastic sandwich bags to wrap the baking in.
This week I decided I wold have a rummage through my cupboards and drawers and look for wrapping I could reuse.
I didn’t find as much as I thought I would – just two polythene bags that I bought apples in.
And I must admit I cheated anyway! As I was taking a look through my cupboards I found a stash of chutney I made last year.
So this week instead of baking, my friend received two jars of 2008 chutney – green tomato and marrow!
She was delighted and it solved my foil, clingfilm and plastic bag usage all in one. The glass jar is reusable or recyclable and my friend was happy with her gift.
How did you get on? Did you find it easy to give up the plastic wrap habit?
