We all want to keep our food fresher for longer, opting for basic cling film or saran wrap. Whilst this has been a go-to for many for generations, this single-use plastic needs a sustainable upgrade. Enter reusable food bags and wraps. Eco-food wraps are becoming more and more common as people seek to reduce the amount of plastic they use, as well as find a cheaper alternative since they can last for a good while. Vegan wraps are made using cotton and plant-based waxes, and make for a nifty way of keeping your food in style — check out these cool ones from Oxfam.

They are water-resistant and keep your food fresher for longer; they’re especially great for any camping trips or hikes where you’ll need lots of food to fuel your days. Reusable and washable, you’ll say goodbye to plastic sandwich bags. Check out these ones from & Keep for some fun designs.

This one’s for when your eyes are bigger than your stomach and you’ve got a lot of leftover food on your plate. If you want to save it for another meal, these food covers are fantastic — just pop it on one of your bowls and you will have successfully sealed your food away without cracking out the foil. They’re reusable, easy to wash and come in lots of cute patterns, like this one from Wearth.
