Food Wraps & Covers
Single use food bags, cling film and tin foil have often been historically popular options for covering or wrapping food. Cling film is a single use plastic that is difficult to recycle and takes hundreds of years to biodegrade. Tin foil is often recyclable, but is still only single use resulting in a higher carbon footprint. As a result, reusable products, or ones made from recycled materials are good alternatives.
Plastic is not all bad. It’s a lightweight and durable material that does have its place. Whilst reducing our reliance on single use plastic items is a good thing, plastic storage containers which can be reused are a good option. If looked after they can last a long time and can help to keep contents fresh to avoid food wastage. We also have glass, ceramic, and stoneware containers.
Single use, takeaway coffee cups have come under fire in recent years for being notoriously difficult to recycle due to the inner liners containing plastic. This has seen a growth in the popularity of travel mugs which can be reused and often have better insulating and anti-spill properties than disposable ones. We stock a range of different styles, colours and designs including versions which collapse to fit in a bag or pocket.
As with coffee cups, we are increasingly aware of the potential harm caused by single use plastic bottles. Whilst drinking water is essential for our own personal health and wellbeing, we don’t want it to be at the detriment of the planet. Replacing single use bottles with reusable, refillable water bottles is an easy and effective way to reduce our reliance on single use plastics.
