Clingfilm Out – Eco Wraps In!!!!

Following on from the ABC’s WAR ON WASTE program and encouraged by our intrepid secretary Diny, a small contingent of community gardeners gathered to learn to make a natural replacement for clingfilm – “ecowraps” – which are made from cotton fabric saturated with natural beeswax, pine rosin & jojoba oil.

These can be wrapped around veges or over the top of leftover food bowls to keep the food fresh in the fridge, then wiped clean ready for ongoing re-use.  No one-use plastic film being thrown in the bin to become tomorrow’s waste problem.

Diny has been demonstrating these ecowraps at our local farmers’ market where we hope people will make a choice to join us in phasing out the use of plastic cling film.
