I don’t know about you but I hate opening the fridge, looking forward to enjoying some left-overs or adding that half avocado to a salad and seeing that it’s gone off. Firstly, the food is delicious and I want to eat it! But secondly I hate having to throw it into the food waste bin.
So how do we prevent this? And is there an eco-friendly way of doing it? Firstly, stop using cling film! It suffocates food and doesn’t keep things as fresh as you think. I’ve listed a few alternatives below, some old favourites and some new ones that will help keep your food lasting for longer!
Food Huggers - Set of 4
OMG where have these been all my life?! We just got them in and and I can’t get over just how handy these are. Perfect for fruit and vegetables that you don’t need to use all of straight away. Just pick the hugger that’s best fits your food and instantly seal in the freshness!
Silicone Ziplock Pouch
These are super cool for any cooking enthusiast. Have you ever made an awesome sauce that has ended up going down the sink after the meal? Well now you can freeze it in the Silicone Ziplock Pouch and keep it for another time. Also perfect for soups and stock!
Silicone Lids - Set of 6
The Silicone lids are just like the Food Huggers but for bowls. Have some left overs that you want to save for later on? Just match the bowl size with the lid and you’re good to go! Hot tip, they are also perfect if you’re eating outside and you need to protect your food from flies or bugs.
The popular beeswax wraps from BeeBee Wraps are a perfect staple to store food as they will wrap around almost anything! They are available in different pack sizes that can be used to wrap things like left-overs, bread, cheese, fruit and nuts. Just in: Relax & Relax Drops are awesome for re-waxing your BeeBee Wraps and make them last for longer!
Vegan Plant Based Wraps
A great vegan alternative to the Beeswax Wraps, the plant wax wraps are made with candelilla wax and organic cotton and also come in a set of three different sizes.
These little guys from Elephant Box are good for the home but great if you ever need to take a salad with you and need somewhere to put the dressing. They are leakproof and fit nicely in your bag or backpack for your lunchtime meals.
