reynoldsWhen it comes to aluminum foil, usually only one name comes to mind: Reynolds Wrap. So when they introduced Reynolds Wrap Aluminum Foil made from 100% Recycled Aluminum, I couldn’t wait to give it a try!

As more and more Americans look for simple ways to become more environmentally friendly, the kitchen truly is the easiest place to start.

With that in mind, Reynolds has introduced Reynolds Wrap® Foil from 100% Recycled Aluminum – a versatile and economical tool to get the job done in the kitchen, and perfect for people looking for simple ways to show they care about the environment.

  • Food-safe foil made from a mix of pre and post consumer aluminum.
  • Strength and durability you’ve come to expect from Reynolds Wrap®.
  • Available in Standard and Heavy Duty strengths.
  • The packaging and core are made from 100% recovered paper and the inks used on the product packaging are water-based.

I was fortunate to receive a roll of Heavy Duty Reynolds Wrap Foil from 100% Recycled Aluminum (ARV $2.99/35 square-foot roll). As expected, the Heavy Duty Recycled Foil felt thicker than the standard “regular” Reynolds Wrap Foil, which I normally use, and it also looked shinier, but it worked just as well as “regular” foil!

I used the Reynolds Wrap 100% Recycled Aluminum Foil primarily to cover cooked meals, but I also often used it to bake. Most recently I used it to line a baking pan when I made lemon bars. Once my lemon bars were done, I simply lifted the entire sheet of foil off of the pan and placed it on a cutting board. The foil didn’t rip or break while transferring my lemon bars from the pan to the cutting board, and I was very happy that I didn’t need to wash the baking pan afterward!

I really couldn’t tell any difference between “regular” Reynolds Wrap Foil and “recycled” Reynolds Wrap Foil in terms of quality and durability, but it’s nice to know that the option is available for those of us who want a trusted brand in aluminum foil and want to help the environment at the same time.

Shop: You can purchase Reynolds Wrap Foil from 100% Recycled Aluminum at various retailers nationwide.

Thank you to Reynolds Packaging Group for the providing the product(s) for review and/or giveaway.
