saran cutting sheets!!!!<br><br><br><br>
ughhhhhhh<br><br><br><br>
...when will it ever end?<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block"><br><b>Saran Disposable Cutting Sheets</b><br><br>
Food prep made easy, clean and safe<br><br><br><br>
Cutting up meat, fish, and vegetables in preparation for a meal can be messy and time-consuming. Reusing a cutting surface can also lead to the cross-contamination of food, making prep work potentially unhealthy, as well.<br><br><br><br>
Saran Disposable Cutting Sheets help reduce that risk and your clean-up time. Each Disposable Cutting Sheet consists of multiple layers: on top, a cut-resistant layer; in the middle, a moisture-absorbing layer; and on the bottom, a liquid-protection barrier layer. Simply place a sheet on a cutting board, countertop, or other firm work surface before you begin chopping, then throw the sheet away when you are finished.<br><br><br><br>
Saran Disposable Cutting Sheets will protect your kitchen work surfaces. And because they are designed for one-time-only use, Saran Disposable Cutting Sheets will also help ensure you are working on a more germ-free surface each time you prepare a meal.<br><br><br><br>

Maybe if these people would just quit with the animal carcasses they wouldn't have to worry about contamination!<br><br>
What's next - disposable chef's knvies? spatulas? frying pans? kitchen counter tops??<br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:">

well, you've identified the problem, now fix it. if you'd like, we can all post terrible things about what you're doing to the environment until you're overcome with guilt and forced to comply. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Well, there is a "need"--or at least a serious problem--that they attempt to address. The contamination of a cutting board, particularly if used to cut meat, can be a very serious health problem. But disposable cutting sheets seem to be a very wasteful way to address this problem.<br><br><br><br>
Even as a vegetarian, I use only plastic cutting boards and wash them by hand or in the dishwasher frequently. The dishwasher probably does a much better job of sterilizing them.

Heey I just got this sandwhich wrapper! I had been using a baggie evry day, throwing it away. Now, i only miss a day every here and there. For a few years, I would bring instant soups for lunch...split pea...oh man, those were not too earth friendly.<br><br>
I often think when my mom is making "dead bird" aka chicken for the rest of my family, "NOw, with vegan chow, you DONT HAVE TO WORRY ABOT contamination!!! Same for cookie dough, you can eat it raw. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> yum. Raw vegan cookie dough. Anyways...

when i was vegetarian, my mom would make the BEST caesar salads and i'd gobble them up. it was only <i>after</i> i went vegan that i discovered her recipe for the dressing was made out of <i>raw eggs</i>. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/spew.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":spew:"> i'd been eating it for years. i guess we were just lucky we never got food poisoning.<br><br><br><br>
i feel much better eating my vegan caesars. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Total nonsense.<br><br><br><br>
But they will sell them, playing in on the unrealistic fear of contamination.<br><br><br><br>
Its only of interest when you cut up animals at home, and if the animal is properly heated there is no problem.

So then maybe it isn't total nonsense.

when i first saw the commercial i was really upset actually. i think it's the stupidest, most wasteful thing ever. i mean, i feel guilty when i use paper towels to clean up a mess because i'm too lazy to find a cloth. i think the amount of paper products we waste is just horrible. and we all do it, every single day. companies coming out with crap like this is just going to make people more and more lazy and dependent on convenience products.<br><br><br><br>
like those stupid toilet wipes that just came out too, copying wet ones or whatever, which are copying baby wipes. when will it end? just use a frickin washcloth people! that's what they're for!

You use a washcloth instead of toilet paper? I don't know... I guess I'm just too americanized, but it seems a little convenience and waste is worth it sometimes.

i think we live in a fear based culture here in the u.s. can't speak too much for canada or elsewhere. anyhow, it seems to me that companies try to maximize their profits by playing on that fear... i hate waste too. my new thing is disposable coffee/tea cups you get at a coffeeshop. i may start bringing my own homey little mug despite the freaky looks i'll no doubt get...:>

what? i didn't say that. i said use a washcloth instead of a disposable wipe to clean surfaces. ie: toilet, sink, counter. and i do think we could live without baby wipes. but i made no mention of toilet paper o_O<br><br><br><br>
we waste a lot of coffee cups in this house. i may start using a travel mug when i stop for coffee on the way to work. i wish the take out cups and lids were recyclable

If you have one kid and buy new cloth diapers, and wash them yourselves, then the amount of pollution equals that of paper/cotton based disposable diapers.<br><br>
If you use the set of diapers again with the second child, then they pollute less.<br><br><br><br>
Imho disposable baby wipes are bad, I can hardly believe they are good for the sensitive baby skin. (probably animal tested for this; the idiots!)<br><br><br><br>
Toilet paper is a typical western issue: in the middle east they have toilets with a spray nozzle that will clean your bud with water.

hey, there's a counter-top dishwasher that you can get! it costs about 124 dollars, but i think it's worth it.<br><br><br><br>
it sits on the counter top and connects to your facet. You leave the facet running for a bit with about a tsp of soap, and then it's done. Anyway, saves water, doesn't use electricity and can wash four place settings plus silverware.<br><br><br><br>
you'll still ahve to wash pans and larger dishes by hand, but it at least does some of it!
