How to ditch the plastic!
It’s easier than you think to store food completely plastic free!
Wrap fresh bread in cloth, or an old pillowcase and store in a wooden bread bin

Use steel and tempered glass pots, as they freeze just as well as plastic ones
Store onions and potatoes in a basket and place somewhere dark
Stand celery sticks in a glass of water and float carrots in a large sealed glass jar filled with water
Wrap green beans and peas in a damp cloth and place in the fridge
Make and store salads in an clean glass jar for a plastic-free packed lunch!
