Clingfilm remnants that end up in the sea pose significant dangers to many marine creatures, who confuse this rubbish for edible jellyfish, not to mention the chemical pollution that results! So Becky Cole is here with another fantastic kitchen sewing project to help us use less of the stuff – a reusable sandwich wrap!
