Use Less Foil and Plastic Wrap

Cover food dishes with a plate or a lid, instead of foil. Wipe up spills with a cloth. Pay attention to packaging and don't buy products that use too much paper or plastic wrap. Email companies that DON'T use too much packaging and thank them.

    Great tips! I'm making a conscious effort to reduce our use of plastic in my families lives. (We don't use much foil.) You have a great site, Ellen! I came here via a search on an editor. Thanks for the information. :D
