You can enjoy the same taste without plastic wrap, all for a less wasteful future
Helping to solve the global single-use plastic problem
Half of all plastic is designed to be used only once, and then thrown away – these plastics are what we call “single-use” plastic.
In addition, only about 9% of the plastic waste generated in the US in 2018 was recycled.
