If it wasn't for leftovers, I don't know how my husband and I would survive. Sometimes after a long day of work, the last thing you feel like doing is throwing together a meal. That's why we've invested in a wide array of food storage solutions, so nothing we make goes to waste.Reuse your foil. When put to the test, plastic wrap has a smaller carbon footprint than foil, but here’s the rub: plastics can leach chemicals into your food. Foil is safer for your health. So how do you stay safe while reducing your impact on the environment? Re-use foil when you can. Be careful not to cross-contaminate foods. For example, if you’ve used foil to cover raw chicken, toss it! But if you used it to save some old dinner rolls, you can reuse it to cover up that leftover fettuccini.
