They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions, but, for most of us, it’s also littered with the plastic detritus of modern living.

Luckily, Mel Scott is trying to do something about it and has launched a crowdfunding campaign to make it happen.

After much trial and error, the Yarra Valley ‘eco warrior’ has invented a reusable product that replaces cling film, aluminium foil and baking paper. Agreena 3-in-1 reusable wraps are made from pure, food-grade silicone.

The wraps are thin and flexible enough to wrap your school lunch sarnies or the end of that pesky cucumber. They’re also stretchy and strong enough to form an airtight seal over bowls or cups – and they’re heat safe, so they can be microwaved or used in the oven at up to 220 degrees. They’ll even survive a stint in the freezer.

Want to invest in the future? You don’t have long: Mel’s Kickstarter campaign closes on Monday 1 May. Find out more here.

Bonus: a percentage from every sale of Agreena products will go towards climate protection projects that comply with the Clean Development Mechanism criteria set down in the Kyoto Protocol.
