To skip plastic, simply switch to the freshly baked loaves that come in paper bags.
Chances are, you're already suspicious of the plastic-wrapped loaves that last for months. So are we. The fresh loaves in paper likely have fewer additives and, if you're lucky, yours might still be warm from the oven.
You can also cut a big wrap into smaller sheets and use them to wrap sandwiches for to-go lunches. We also use them to store our cheese in the fridge. Simply wrap the sandwich or cheese in parchment paper first and then use beeswax wrap to keep the bundle tight.
Bonus Tip: To wash the wrap, spread it in the sink and rinse it with cold water plus a bit of soap. Scrub with a scrubber brush and hang to dry. Don't use warm water, since it'll melt the wax.
We love to see & share how all of us are healing our planet one kitchen, one trip to the store at a time!
