As I’ve mentioned a bunch, my husband and I recently bought a property in Lancaster, PA, which we are renovating to be a non-toxic retreat. Because I’ve lived in New York City my whole adult life, it’s been fun to spend so much time in the ‘burbs–I love sending the kids out to play in a yard, the drive-through Starbucks, and the crazy wide aisles in the grocery store.
But the very best part of the #burblife might be Costco, where I get jumbo bags of organic grapefruit, a year’s-worth of toilet paper at once (and here’s why I secretly don’t by the recycled kind), and….Ziploc bags! While Ziplocs don’t have BPA or phthalates, plastic is plastic, and Ziploc baggies are obviously not an earth-friendly purchase. So here’s what I want to know: what do you guys use instead of plastic baggies? (My issue with most of the reusable ones–like this–is that they have a plastic liner.)
Other than Ziploc baggies, our food storage is plastic-free.
Plastic-Free Food Storage Ideas
Instead of plastic wrap:
Bees Wrap has been a game-changer in our house for wrapping bread, cheese, and vegetables…or covering bowls of leftovers.
For packing lunches:
Felix gets his sandwich in this Bee’s Wrap, his yogurt in this Eco Vessel, and berries, carrot sticks, or pasta in this LunchBots stainless steel container. His water goes in this Pura Kiki.
Please comment below with what you use in place of Ziplock bags, and other plastic-free food storage ideas!
P.S. I recently learned about Stasher silicone bags…could this be a solution for plastic-free breast milk storage? If you’ve tried them, let me know!
