    I was just covering a pan of lasagna with some foil and was thinking about this thread. I hope I did not give the impression that I am against the use of aluminum, either as a cooking vessel or as foil! I use foil, although as sparingly as I can, as I've seen the results of some of the mines. I do have a few anodized aluminum pots (most notably my stock pot), as aluminum is a great heat conductor. If I did wrap items for the freezer in foil I would definitely recycle it, as long as it was clean and had no food residue. I'm a little sensitive about water use because I moved from a place of unmetered water to the desert. icon_eek.gif

    I didn't get that impression Zeldaz. You spoke about using foil wisely and the macro-environmental aspects of the product. I agree. Of course, there are environmental downsides to the paper industry as well. I thought you made some good points. I worked for awhile in Bauxite, AR and have taken a dip or two in one of the completed bauxite pits.
