"How green is my paper?"
10 October 2008
I am trying to cut down the number of plastic bags that hang round in my kitchen - I wash and reuse as many as I can but they don't enhance the view as they hang around dripping! So I invested in some plastic storage boxes for the fridge (including an excellent Lock & Lock bacon box and Tefal cheese cellar) and a roll of this waxed paper. I'm very pleased so far; food like ham and cheese definitely seem to feel less 'damp' after being wrapped in it. I was just wondering if anyone has views on, or experience of, adding it to the compost heap. I use a bokashi bin in the kitchen, which deals with just about everything, but I suppose it depends on what the waxing is actually made of. If it's safe and easy to compost then this paper will be the perfect solution to all my 'green' worries about little plastic bags and clingfilm! So 4 stars plus a possibility of another!
