Not using tin foil and plastic wrap

I read chowhound regularly, it's one of my browser favorites and I just clicked on Chow tips to see the video on how to use the wok as a smoker. Cool idea.

But...I have a huuuge problem with the amount of aluminum foil that was used in the demo. This made me think about my own use of foil and plastic wrap. While I keep these items in my kitchen drawer, I find I rarely use them. For leftovers and even when we are out to a restaurant where there might be a doggiebag, I'll use a glass/plastic container. As consumers, I find we use too much packaging materials that just go straight to the landfill and if I can do something to mitigate this, I will try.

Am I the only one who's such a miser?
