Aluminium foil is apparently less environmentally friendly than plastic wrap.

I've been doing some research, and my instincts told me that aluminium foil would be more environmentally friendly than plastic wrap. A lot of info out there supports this, and it seems that most people feel this way - but then I came across this article which says the exact opposite.
Our impact on the environment is so important to many of us these days, I thought I'd just put it out there.
Interesting. I have a bit of a habit of wrapping things first with plastic wrap and then with aluminum foil. Sandwiches and leftover pizza, both of which are usually in my fridge, are always wrapped this way.
I couldn't care less about the environment. I want my leftover pizza to be as good as it can be.
You must be trying to be sarcastic. If so, I got it. Otherwise, in order to further save the Earth, I recommend you not use either product. You will sleep better at night knowing you have made a difference.
Sorry about my nastiness.
