Packed lunches are traditionally wrapped up in cling film, tin foil or plastic bags, which normally end up binned and in landfill. We're delighted to stock an alternative in this reusable, eco-friendly sandwich wrapper from Re-wrap it.
This wrapper not only keeps your sandwich or food fresh inside, but it also unfolds into a plate, ideal for keeping your desk clean or if you are eating outside. No more worrying about toddlers eating food from the floor or dirty picnic tables. It fits one or two sandwiches or rolls, wraps etc.
The wrapper can be used day after day with just a wipe down of the plastic food side and an occasional rinse in the sink to get rid of any spill marks on the outside – all sealed up with a Velcro strip to keep it fresh. It can also be popped in the washing machine.
At The Green Turtle, we first came across these years ago and the ones we sourced then are still going strong with regular use.
The wrappers are made in Scotland and now with the help of the inmates at Kilmarnock prison, who are paid for their work and develop skills and gain a qualification that could help them gain employment in the future.
Available in different fabric options.
LDPE plastic lining conforms with EU Regulations 2015/174.
I love the design of these sandwich wrappers, it's honestly changed the way my partner and I do our lunches and also makes things much more efficient, not having to worry about what Tupperware or cling film or foil to put things in. Very cute and a great idea. I love that they're reusable, although originally I did think they would be beeswax rather than have a little bit of plastic on one side. I understand its reusable but after years and years, I imagine they do still eventually wear out and technically there is still plastic being used, even if it complies with certain regulations - as far as I know, it's not biodegradable.
Anyway at least we can use them for a much longer time and reduce cling film use etc. It would be good if there was a covering inside that was durable but not a permanent plastic, but awesome product otherwise, definitely need these transition products in between converting to attempting zero waste etc :)
Lovely idea to cut down on the ridiculous amount of cling film you use on your packed lunch every day. It's great that you can use it as a napkin (so will be mega useful when we eventually get back out in the caravan and can go on long walks!). Only 1 small point, I would have liked the velcro to go further round when it's closed up. I have wraps which tend to have a smaller surface area than the average bread sarnie so I end up rolling it quite tight to keep the stuffing inside! It's a minor point so do not let this put you off buying them - I still think they are ... basically ... ACE!!!!!
It’s scary how much cling film and foil wrap is used and thrown away daily. The sandwich wraps are a brilliant and colourful alternative that keep food fresh and easy to find in a bag. They wipe clean easily too!
Amazingly useful! Can't believe I didn't buy one before. I've saved loads of cling film from going in the waste since.
No wasteful plastic, keeps sandwiches fresh and tightly wrapped. My husband's colleagues are so impressed they are buying them too.
