Cling film is nothing but a distant memory in our household but I’m afraid to admit that is where my eco swaps for lunches ends. I discovered beeswax wraps over a year ago and imagined myself making my own with beautiful fabrics. However, the procrastinator in me meant that never happened and here I am, a year later still reaching for the convenient packet sandwiches and snacks. This Plastic Free July I pledge to treat myself to some lovely reusable lunch storage solutions, pre-prep my lunches in advance and ditch the convenient prepackaged sarnies for good! There are so many great options out there for wrapping and storing your lunches. Here are just a few...
1. Solid lunchboxes such as stainless steel canteen types or bamboo lunchboxes (Morrison’s and Lidl have a good affordable range in stores right now starting at £2)
2. Reusable pouches and lunch bags. Nom Nom food pouches are fab for snacks on the go.
3. Fabric beeswax wraps are great for wrapping sandwiches, cheeses etc. If you are feeling creative there are lots of tutorials on line showing you how to make your own.
Alternatively, many local shops and online stores have jumped on the beeswax band wagon. Rocket and Pickle sell some really lovely beeswax wraps at reasonable prices.
