Reducing waste: Adios cling wrap!
Fake Plastic Fish and Zero Waste Home, I now consciously try to use less single-use plastics, in this case cling wrap. When melting butter, etc., topping a bowl with a plate works just as well as cling wrap at keeping the microwave clean. Best part is no plastic in landfill here AND the plate is already paid for, so I'm not wasting money on some plastic that I'd use once then toss. Such a "low-hanging-fruit" style of waste reduction, why did it take me so long to do this? Oh, I know there are times when cling wrap is a must, but when I read that David Lebovitz washes and reuses his plastic cling wrap, I tried it. Guess what? Works like a charm!
