If you are trying to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle, food storage can be a bit difficult. Some people grew up on plastic wrap and aluminum foil, so breaking that habit can seem impossible. Luckily, there are so many ways to keep your food fresh without having to use single-use items. Check out these handy food storage tips and make your house a little bit more green.
Whether you choose to use glass storage boxes or even just old jars, glass is a great vehicle for keeping foods fresh. The best thing about this method is that since it’s clear, you can see what you have inside them so nothing gets left behind.
Reusable Food Wraps
If you really want to continue wrapping your fruits and vegetables in some sort of material, try and use a beeswax fabric instead of plastic or aluminum! They are reusable, washable, and most companies make them compostable as well. They also come in really cute designs!
Pots and Pans
If you want to keep something in the pot or pan you cooked it in to reduce clean up and save time for reheating, just throw a plate on top of it and it’ll keep your food fresh in the fridge.
