I love plastic wrap. I feel terrible about it, but it’s true: I love plastic wrap.

I love the way it clings to the edges of the bowl and it is so seamless all you can see are the floating edges, otherwise it’s perfectly clear.

I love those industrial plastic wrap rolls that stretch out over those giant steel tables to wrap big gigantic foodie things like party sandwiches or trays of cookies. I’m sure I’m only attracted to the shiny clean-ness of plastic wrap – so neatly tidy and shiny and perfect.

In doing a little tiny bit of research I found this article that discusses “active packaging,” which freaks me out even more than just regular plastic wrap, even though it seems like a good idea because the active packaging is biodegradable. Then there’s a corn issue, of course. And other weird little active agents and funny business. No, I’m calling a nix on “active packaging” and sticking with no packaging!

Yes! No!

The better part of my brain is telling me that I’m going to have to abandon plastic wrap for the sake of mankind. I know it’s for the best, but I really don’t want to. Gah.
