It's nearly impossible to recycle plastic cling wrap that you use to cover bowls before you microwave to prevent splattering. Since the plastic resins used in cling wrap are difficult to recycle, it's rejected by recyclers and should be tossed into the trash. But do you even need it? Try this eco-alternative instead: Place a microwave-safe dish on top of the bowl and then heat your food. The plate will act as a cover and prevent splatters, and then the whole set -- bowl and plate -- can be washed and reused.
