Does anyone know where you can get Nori that is not packaged in plastic.  I just found an amazing veggie sushi recipe but have never seen Nori sheets in bulk.  Or has anyone found another way to wrap sushi that isn't just raw greens?  Thanks.

Where do you live? I've seen various kinds of dried seaweed in bulk bins at Rainbow Grocery in San Francisco.

The Nori we get at Raley's is packaged in cellophane which is a plant based material as I recall.

Real cellophane was plant-based. However, nowadays there is a lot of plastic that resembles cellophane, and which might even be called cellophane, that is actually plastic. The only way to know for sure if it's plant-based is if the package is labelled as such. Otherwise, you can pretty much assume it's plastic.
