I have been reducing use of one-time-use items in the house, and have drastically reduced the use of plastic wrap by putting food items in tupperwares.
However, there remains a few uses for plastic wrap for which I have not found an alternative:
- For example, I use it when "steaming" vegetables in the microwave (a faster and more energy efficient option than using the stovetop) since it can create a seal without exploding
- To cover things that are not easily moved into a sealable container, e.g. leftover smoothies in a glass or those huge non-standard sized cans of pumpkin or leftover pies in a pie tin.
Things I already use: I have plastic can "lids" for pet food cans of standard sizes. I also use those metal binder clips that are found in office supplies to get a good seal on plastic packages.
Other considerations: I am not interested in buying a million different gadgets for each potential use, nor any other disposables that generate waste.
