Can you recycle cling wrap?

If you’re looking for a new way to care for the environment, we have the answer for you.

You would be surprised how often people search, ‘can you recycle cling wrap?’. Yes is it plastic, however, due to it being a soft plastic it cannot be sorted at a recycling facility. It sits in landfill for yeas while it ever so slowly breaks down. We often think about the negative impact we have had using cling wraps and sandwich bags until recently when Compostic reached out to us. They have a new range of cling wraps and sandwich bags that are better for the environment.

Now Compostic isn’t recyclable either, but is it compostable and should break down within 12-24 weeks. For those that do not have a compost – good news also, the Compostic products decompose quicker than regular plastic at your commercial rubbish landfill.

They are also freezer safe, microwave safe and worm bin safe so basically they’re safe in every situation. There is also no cutter in the cling wrap box, but do not worry – they have all been pre-cut to the size of a dinner plate so there is no waste.

We also love the green packaging, it reminds you that you are doing something better for the environment and you can easily distinguish it from regular cling wrap and bags.

The only down side we have experienced after a few uses is that is does tear more easily then regular cling wrap but if you are careful it should not be a problem. We think this small issue does not out way the good you are doing for the environment.

Let us know if you have tried these products or if you know of any other similar brands.

Review: The Hideout Cafe & Pizza

We spend our days trying to find new, exciting and hidden cafes around Sydney and just when we thought we had found them all, along comes a café that was in hiding.

The Hideout Café is surrounded by houses in the backstreets of Old Toongabbie just off Old Windsor Road. It looks like your average take-away, however, once you sample that menu, average gives way to amazing!

What did we have?

The choices on this menu are endless. Your breakfast, brunch, lunch and pizza cravings are sorted. We started with the Smoked Salmon with spinach and avocado on sourdough. A delicious dish with fresh ingredients, the sourdough with a good spread of cream cheese. Next we devoured the Vegetarian Stack consisting of our favourite “haloumi”, spinach, mushrooms, avocado, hash brown, grilled tomato on sourdough with two perfectly cooked poached eggs. Add a dash of basil pesto and you have a dish to satisfy plenty of tastes. To finish – a sweet dish to balance out the morning – Acai Bowl with crunchy granola, almonds, banana, kiwi and strawberries. Delishous! The Chai Latte and Soy Cap lived up to our standards.

The lunch menu also includes sandwiches and wraps, pizzas, burgers, fish and chips, skewers etc.. If you are looking for a new café, this is definitely worth a try. It is a busy place and that usually means one thing, and the staff are super friendly – always a plus!

We will definitely be returning to sample the delicious lunch menu.
