Recycle Only the Box
Remove the little strip of metal teeth before placing the box with cardboard recycling. Break down the box and then recycle it.
Ways to Reduce
Buy Petroleum-Free Alternatives
Buy paper that uses soy wax rather than paraffin wax because this paper is made from a renewable resource. Paraffin wax is made from petroleum.
Ways to Reuse
Clean and Reuse
If the wax paper is not soiled with grease or food, you can clean and reuse it.
