The Rap on Wrap

Put an end to that annoying habit of using plastic bags, yes those extremely handy but really nasty dumpsite-fillers. Try using re-usable containers for storing your food and pantry items. Either rifle through your mom's cupboards or comb through flea markets & tag sales for those fabulous Pyrex and generic glass containers that you can use for storing leftovers in the fridge.

Or check out some eco-friendly options from London-based Natural bio-degradable, GM-free, fully compostable cornstarch bags to store foodstuffs. Replace your plastic trash can liners with those that are made from potato starch or biodegradable, 100% recycled polythene.

NC offers many more practical alternative products -- if you find yourself feeling guilty as you reach for the aluminum foil as part of your outdoor grilling ritual, it's time to make the switch...NC offers a brand new brand, made of 100% recycled aluminium. Their parchment paper is made from unbleached paper with a silicone coating, thus not being exposed to or ingesting the usual chemical compounds found in these greaseproof papers.

These products can be found in the kitchen/grocery section (pgs 2 & 3) of the Natural Collection site.
