5 food storage alternatives

5 food storage alternatives

It’s pretty bad that despite all of the research behind the evils of plastic, we are still slinging our sandwiches into sheets of the see-through stuff. So can we do better? We give you 5 alternatives that will keep your kitchen clean and green.

1. Beeswax food wrap covers

Made from fabric, organic beeswax, natural tree resin straight from the source and pure jojoba oil. Not only washable, pliable and totally sustainable, these little wraps will add a sweet cuteness to all of your refrigerated finds.


2. Bento Boxes

Traditionally Japanese, but now used worldwide, these little lunch boxes are great for the compulsive food organiser who loves to separate, organise and beautify.


3. Stainless Steel Lunch Box

Just like a traditional Indian tiffin box, these stackable food containers are reusable, hygienic, durable, recyclable and will never leach harmful toxins.


4. Reusable Food Pouches

Reusable food pouches are the no-waste way to serve yoghurt, pureed fruit and veggies to your child. Easy to clean, store and carry with you. Perfect for the mum on the go!


5. Mason Jars

Last but not least, we all love a good mason jar. Not only are they super hip to drink your lush smoothie from, they also serve as great storage units for pantry items such as nuts, preserved fruit and vegetables, flours, powders, vitamins and jams.


You can find heaps of other great food storage ideas at the Biome website HERE.
