Plastic-Free Food Storage

When we talked last month about plastic-free cooking, quite a few people mentioned that food storage was one of their biggest challenges when it came to ditching plastic in the kitchen.

Since the advent of Tupperware, plastic containers have been the standard when it comes to storing food and even packing your lunch for work or school. Luckily, there are quite a few plastic alternatives for storing and for toting your food.

the only negative is that pyrex, corning and metal let the air in so food goes bad quickly, unless you use plastic lids. Just make sure to recycle them!. My Mom used corning growing up to cook and store leftovers, but the food always got hard around the edges..

the snack wraps seem like a good idea, but again, air gets in so how long can you keep things fresh?

I dont have a problem with using plastic containers as long as you recycle them after..
my problem is all the plastic used for individual snacks...they are dirty, so will they be accepted to be recycled?

i try to use glass mostly, sometimes it's tough to carry to work and people steal them
