Plastic Elimination

Here are three ways I'm eliminating plastics in my home:

1. Use freezer/butcher paper to freeze products.
2. Use wax paper to wrap sandwiches for lunches
3. Use mason jars to store foods and leftovers in the fridge and pantry

I posted below before I saw this. When I was younger mom would wrap our sandwiches in wax paper and stick shut with a piece of tap (could use cute stickers now) and even made little bags for our chips with wax paper. Our food was always fresh.

Thanks for sharing this, Kate! I like the idea of using Mason Jars for food. I use pyrex, which still has a plastic top.

I like Mason Jars too. I use foil as I can recycle it when I'm done.

What if hubby has a job where he can heat up leftovers? Any ideas for eliminating plastic there?
I love the idea of the mason jars for leftovers. I would love to open my fridge to see a row of mason jars lined up with food!

just curious, why do you want to cut down on the use of plastic? Is it unhealthy? Again, just curious.
