I buy my animal protein ahead and freeze it in the plastic bags it came in. I would love to eliminate the plastic bags but have not come up with a suitable alternative that will allow me to avoid freezer burn. Extensive online searching brough up nothing so far.

anyone have a solution?

You can get reusable silicone ziplock bags. I'm planning on getting some, just haven't gotten around to it yet.

I've just recently got some silicone ziplock bags, looking forward to seeing how they go

Not the best solution as it still uses plastic but I keep bread bags once we finish a loaf of bread and use that to freeze meat (after shaking out the crumbs).

Plastic wasn't being purchased specially to store meat, rather something was being reused at least once.
