What I am reviewing today?
The Natural New Age Girl thought it was a shower cap!
Wrong! Although, at a pinch, you could very well use them for shower caps!
They are in fact, an ingenious solution to how to store food in the fridge without using plastic wrap.
We are always trying to lessen the amount of plastic we use in our home. Cling wrap on plates and bowls of leftovers was one area I struggled with! What else was going to keep it fresh and free from fridge odours?
Ta-dah! Enter the 4MyEarth® Food Covers!
What are they made from? Cotton and canvas with a biodegradable coating.
Are they reusable? Yes, just wash them up with a little soapy water and drip dry. You can also put them in the dishwasher or washing machine.
Do they come in different sizes? Yes, they come in four different sizes.
Do they come in different patterns? Yes, they come in plain and flower print.
What do you use them for? Once you start using the food covers, you will discover all different ways you can use them. Basically, anytime you would have used plastic wrap over a bowl or plate, use the food cover. They are great as I mentioned for leftovers in the fridge. The big bowl on the right in the picture has some Quirky Cooking Chicken and Brown Rice Soup in it. They also are handy for parties or bbqs to keep the flies off your salad bowls. Quite often when I am cooking, I need to let things stand, soak or prove and instead of a tea towel, the food cover is perfect.
Do they keep the food fresh? Yes! I found no discernible difference in freshness compared to using cling wrap.
Hang on, I have seen these in the supermarket – aren’t they vinyl with BPA? That’s why I have never purchased the supermarket ones! These food covers are BPA free, PVC Free and phthalate free. Totally food grade safe! Whew!
What about the company? Rebecca at 4 My Earth is a real natural, new age mum! She is committed to the environment and all her products must be ethically made and help in reducing our impact with reusable and where possible use organic materials. Another fabulous, Australian owned and run family business. They also sell lots of other cool stuff too – love their bamboo shawl so much!
Where do you get them from? You can get them straight from the lovely Rebecca online.
What’s the final verdict? I absolutely love the food covers. What a fantastic, eco-friendly idea. They are easy to use and wash and they have definitely cut down our plastic wrap use to a significant degree. No more eco-guilt!
Okay, so who would like to try some for themselves?
Rebecca is kindly giving away two of her value packs which contain four covers, one in each size.
