    well who uses cling film. I am 69 and never use it. put a plate or old saucer on top of dishes of food leave stuff in the pot and cover with a lid like this. no need to wrap it up. I cant see the point i doing this is you have to purchase stuff to make it . it doesnt appear to use any waste items at all , only stuff you buy! that means no improvement to the planet for me.
