What to use instead

Plastic film has been used a lot in my house. To cover and preserve food is the main goal. So what can I use instead, when I want to minimize the use of plastic? It is so easy! Glass with lid. Second hand shops, Salvation Army, your mother’s or grandmother’s basement, your local recycling station…you can find everything you need there. This oval glass form with lid I paid 10 Norwegian kroner for in a local second hand store. It is 1,1 USD or 1 euro. And my daughters can inherit it. Talk about sustainability.

Plastfilm (gladpack) har blitt brukt mye i huset mitt. Å dekke og bevare mat er jo hovedmålet. Så hva kan jeg bruke i stedet, når jeg vil minimere bruken av plast? Det er så enkelt! Glass med lokk. Bruktbutikker, Frelsesarmeen, din mors eller bestemors kjeller, din lokale gjenbruksstasjon … du kan finne alt du trenger der. Denne ovale glassformen med lokk betalte jeg 10 kroner for i en lokal bruktbutikk. Det er 1,1 USD eller 1 euro. Og mine døtre kan arve det. Snakk om bærekraft!
