    I've been using a beeswax/jojoba oil cloth cover instead of plastic wrap. (I actually bought it from an MBA volunteer at the craft fair!) It was a great way to not use plastic wrap yesterday at a 4th of July potluck!  One of our other PFJ participants, Cory, showed me the website below - it's another  great alternative to plastic wrap! What other sources do you all use to remove plastic wrap from your life??
