Cling film alternative

Chrissy Watson of Manly is passionate about reducing the amount of waste going to landfill.

When Plastic-Free July came around she posted on her Facebook page one simple change each day that just about everyone could incorporate into their life towards going plastic free.

“I got to about day 10 and my focus had shifted,” she says. “Instead of encouraging people to use less cling film I decided to provide them with an alternative.”

Chrissy began making beeswax wraps in her kitchen and decided to give $1 from every one sold to The Neonatal Trust Auckland.

She says the response has been overwhelming, so she will be continuing to make the wraps as long as the demand is there. Info: look for Chrissy Watson on Facebook or phone 021 952 473.
