Answer: So you spend more money than necessary for a new one.

Instead of Plastic Wrap

Statt Frischhaltefolie © rethink-recycle.net

If you iron over a square of cotton with bees wax, than you get the environmentally friendly version of plastic wrap which you can reuse as you like! 🙂

On YouTube there are a lot of tutorials which also show different methods (iron // oven):

Vegan alternative

Alternative to bees wax you can use carnauba wax which is not made of animal products.
There’s a tutorial here (german):

Flustix certifies plastic-free products

 

“FLUSTIX is a seal which certifies plastic-free products. Only if both packaging and product are tested free of plastic will our independent license-partner award the FLUSTIX seal.

 

Our Goal
We want to reduce plastic waste and encourage industries to replace plastic with alternatives. By marking plastic-free products with the FLUSTIX seal, every customer can make a conscious and sustainable buying-decision. […]

 

When a manufacturer wants to be certified by FLUSTIX, its produce undergoes a strict testing process. Products, meaning content and packaging, are being tested for plastic contamination by FLUSTIX. In a second step, the product is sent to the independent, unbiased laboratory Wessling GmbH which tests the product for its exact plastic content.

 

Every product on the German, Austrian and Swiss markets can be tested.”
