Reusable Food Wrap is a Great Alternative to Plastic

Reusable food wrap is great to make if you're trying to cut down on food waste, save money, and have your food and leftovers last longer. The best part about these wraps is that they can be used again and again (unlike plastic which has to be thrown out after one use), and can be made into all sorts of funky colors and patterns. Once you give these a try you'll never go back to plastic!
