Here are some of the things we love about this fantastic product.
Zero Wrap is Also More Eco-Friendly Compared to Disposable Alternatives
Any product that requires manufacturing and being disposed of at the end of it's use, will be environmentally damaging in some way. This could be because of the carbon footprint, or the potential harm caused by materials used. Opting for products that are durable and reusable at least minimises the need for new products, and helps to reduce your own footprint on the Planet.
Zero Wrap is more eco-friendly compared to:
Plastic! - Zero Wrap is 100% recyclable, unlike cling film! And it does not break down into microplastics if it ever does end up in the land or ocean, to later be consumed by animals & humans in food or water.
Paper! - Apart from the recyclable storage box, Zero Wrap does not use precious paper resources. More often than not, baking paper is not made from recycled paper, it is not recyclable, and it is used for a few hours before being thrown away.
Foil! - Zero Wrap is highly durable and can be used over and over again, unlike foil. Aluminium foil is also often thrown in the bin, not into recycling, when it is caked in food and grease.
It's also oven-safe and vegan, unlike beeswax wraps.
