How to replace using saran/glad plastic wrap?

Do the following need to be air tight, or ....

...can I use wax paper to wrap opened blocks of cheese?

...can I use a lid, like a Pringles lid, to put on top of an opened can of coconut milk?

For cans you can buy reusable silicon lids. We have some similar to these (they were a gift so no idea where they got them, but as usual Amazon has them):

They work fine - we just don't get much of a chance to use them since most containers come with lids.

Yes you can use wax paper to wrap cheese. Some say that wrapping cheese in saran wrap will, for certain cheeses, have the cheese take on the plastic flavour and wax paper is actually recommended. You can wrap the cheese in wax paper and then store in a container.

^ Wow, thanks for letting me know about the strech silicone!! I have never heard of this before!!!

Coincidentally, on the topic of plastic, CBC Marketplace did an episode a few days ago about excess supermarket plastic. I'm so glad I'm not the only one bothered by this: https://www.cbc.ca/marketplace/episodes ... -challenge
