I’ve been saying for ages that I wanted to find shower-cap-style food savers like my Grandma used to have. Do you know what I mean? They’re made of plastic, and have an elastic around the bottom. You pop them over a bowl or casserole dish full of leftovers and throw it in the fridge. In other words, they replace saran wrap! And they’re easily washed and re-used. Sweet.
However, I haven’t been able to find them anywhere! Anyone I know who has one inherited them from their grandparents or other elderly relatives. Then today I was at the General Store cafe in Fergus and tada! There they were! And not only are the practical, they’re printed with cute sayings. Nothing helps motivate one to be eco-friendly more than cute gear.
So while I already pledged to give up plastic wrap, and I don’t keep any in the house, this is just one more step to reducing my plastic consumption. Who needs plastic food storage containers if you can just stick your bowl right in the fridge? Oh, and it will reduce dishwashing too, which is always great. Finally, a green change that my partner will love too.
