Perhaps you've seen a product like this in the kitchen housewares aisle of your store: "eco-friendly" plastic wrap. It's packaged in a recycled paperboard box and lists attributes like "natural value" and "PVC-free." At the end of the day, it's still single-use plastic. When it comes to shopping for eco-friendly products, be diligent about avoiding products that are marketed as eco-friendly but are far from it. Instead of a slightly greener plastic wrap, how about forgoing this unrecyclable, nonbiodegradable item altogether?
