Stainless steel lunch boxes make nice alternatives to disposable plastic bags or even plastic lunch boxes. These won’t taint the taste of your food, but obviously don’t put these in the microwave. Clingfilm results in microplastics dropping in the oceans, and can’t even be recycled. Many litterbugs drop sandwiches on the ground. If wrapped in clingfilm they can harm pets and wildlife (cooked bones or eating plastic).
