Thrifty and waste-free


A reusable Food Kozy Wrap ($6.95 for 2) from Arizona-based company U•Konserve is a waste-free and thrifty alternative to baggies or plastic wrap for school or work lunches. Place the food in the middle of the 13-inch, chemical-free plastic round and fold the Kozy into a square around it. A Velcro closure secures the bundle, which is sturdy enough to handle leaky foods. Use a Kozy for cut veggies, fruit, and cheese. The wrap doubles as an on-the-go placemat that’s easy to wipe clean. It’s a kid-friendly green product that’s stylish for adults too.
