One of the most difficult things to recycle is plastic film. Even if you are lucky enough to live in a city that does take plastic film (most of us don’t), it still has to be clean and dry when it goes into your recycling bin or bag. Hmmm... What might be an alternative solution?

  • Try using a beeswax wrap.
  • Cover bowls with a plate instead of plastic wrap.
  • Try using aluminum foil, which is easier to wash and dry and is infinitely recyclable.
