Cling Cloth Beeswax Food Wraps:
one great tool in your efforts to help stem the growing tide of plastic waste choking the planet.
By now you've surely heard some scary statistics about the plastic pollution that is overwhelming the planet. You've seen heartbreaking photos of sealife tangled in plastic nets, or choked to death by plastic bags. Perhaps you've strolled beaches and noticed small pieces of worn down plastics - who knows what they used to be. We're guessing you've even seen all or clips from David Attenborough's Blue Oceans or his interviews around the problem.
All the sudden media attention may lead us to believe this is a recent problem. The sad truth is, since plastic never really goes away, the problem has been steadily growing since the invention of plastic and its introduction into our daily, consumer lives in the 1950s and 60s.
Single-use plastics, or disposable plastics, are used only once before they are thrown away or recycled. These items are things like plastic bags, straws, coffee stirrers, soda and water bottles and most food packaging. Our further attempts to keep food - after disposing of the plastic it was sold in - often involve more single-use plastics.
Petroleum based plastic is not biodegradable and usually goes into a landfill where it is buried or it gets into the water and finds it’s way into the ocean. Plastic will not biodegrade --decompose into natural substance like soil-- but it will break down into tiny particles after many years. In the process of breaking down, it releases toxic chemicals which make their way into our food and water supply. Recycling rates remain low, and many plastics we consume every single day are just not recyleable for even the most conscientious consumer.
These toxic chemicals are now being found in our bloodstream and the latest research has found them to disrupt the Endocrine system which can cause cancer, infertility, birth defects, impaired immunity and many other ailments.
We are proud that at Cling Cloth we do our part. Since our introduction in July 2017, in an effort to provide people a tool to use every day to use less single-use plastics, we have saved over 800,000 pieces of cling-film or plastic bags from entering the environment. * Thank you for doing all you can, every day, to use less plastic.
