Hey friends, I'm Laura, the founder of The Eco Shop and our parent company Our Future Is Green Limited. I am currently campaigning for pre-orders for a new product that I have designed called GreenWrap - an eco-friendly alternative to cling film, aluminium foil, and baking paper. GreenWrap has 3 main functions – to cook, cover and wrap your food. We can guarantee that if we can get enough households to stock this product, single waste plastics and other wasteful kitchen items could be avoided, SIGNIFICANTLY reducing pollution, and minimising the need to draw from precious natural resources.
If you are interested in supporting the launch of this fantastic product, you can find out all about it below and place pre-orders at our Kickstarter crowdfunding page here.
We're desperately hoping to secure enough pre-orders for us to launch GreenWrap by March 2020.
GreenWrap is an eco-friendly alternative to cling film, aluminium foil, and baking paper, and it has 3 main functions – to cook, cover and wrap your food. It is made from a food-grade silicone and is available in multiple sizes to meet your various kitchen needs. It is oven-safe, dishwasher-safe, can be hand-washed, and above all, it is so much more EARTH-SAFE than throwaway alternatives. It is designed to last and is highly durable.
Our manufacturer is an incredibly reputable company, with decades of experience behind them in producing high-quality, food-grade silicone products. We have been working very closely with them to test and improve GreenWrap as they have developed our unique formula and packaging design.
We have created a food wrap which is super sticky, sticking enough but not too much to make it impossible to use. It stretches enough to wrap food and cover dishes, but doesnt break easily. It has a reasonable thickness but is not too thick so that you can wrap food effectively.
We've chosen a round storage tube in order to make rolling your wraps and storing them as easy as possible. To do this, you restick the wrap to the backing sheet and then roll it up like a poster and pop it back in the tube. The tube is made out of recycled sturdy cardboard so will last a long time and will fit nicely in your drawers, and at the end of it's life it is 100% recyclable.
We have been very adament that the wrap itself must also be 100% recyclable, and we will offer customers a recycling program so that wraps which are no longer wanted can be sent back to us, and we will ensure they are recycled properly.
OTHER BENEFITS OF GREENWRAP:
Food Safe: GreenWrap is made from food-grade silicone, meaning it's entirely safe to be in contact with your food. You can clean it thoroughly, and it can also withstand very high temperatures, so you are much more likely to kill germs when cleaning it than with wax-based alternatives which can't be washed in hot water.
Cooking: GreenWrap keeps your food moist during baking, and prevents sticking to dishes and trays as is often found when baking vegetables, sausages, or other foods during oven cooking. You will be pleasantly surprised to lift GreenWrap out of the tray and find there is minimal washing up to be done, and that grease melts away from your GreenWrap when placed in hot water.
Cleaning: GreenWrap is very easy to clean, place greasy wraps in hot soapy water and grease washes off easily. GreenWrap can be handwashed or placed in the dishwasher. Once washed, hang out to dry before packing away.
Leak Proof: Use GreenWrap with an elastic band and create a seal proof fasten, ideal for storing soup and drinks.
Reusable: GreenWrap is reusable. Just imagine how much single-use waste could be saved from landfill and from the recycling system if every household and commerical kitchen switched to GreenWrap, and no-one ever used a new pack of cling film, baking paper, or aluminium foil again? The results could be astronomical. Another benefit of using reusable products is you need less NEW products, so the precious resources and materials required to create new products is completely avoided.
YOU CAN USE GREENWRAP TO:
- Cover bowls
- Cover cups
- Wrap fruit
- Wrap sandwiches
- Wrap nuts and other snacks for when you're out and about
- Cover leftovers
- Cover tomorrow night's dinner
- Line baking dishes and trays in the oven
- Cover food in the oven to keep them moist
- Cover things before they go into the microwave to prevent splashing
