Keep Your Food Fresh for Longer!
Unlike plastic, eco-friendly beeswax wraps are a breathable material and help your food avoid getting hot and wilting. Beeswax is a natural barrier for your food so it acts in the same way as plastic but keeps your fresh food fresh and happy! Our versatile beeswax wraps are made from organic cotton, jojoba oil, tree resin, and of course beeswax. Beeswax and jojoba oil have antibacterial qualities, which help keep food fresh and also keep things clean, reducing the risk of contamination.
Reusable: Use your beeswax wraps again and again and again
The best way to go low-waste and live the eco-friendly lifestyle is by refusing single-use plastics and opting for reusable options – and beeswax wraps are certainly the best plastic-free alternative to food wrap. But they aren’t just something you can use a few times – our plastic-free, organic beeswax wraps can be used over and over again, in fact they can last for at least 12 months with regular daily use! So if you do your calculations, the amount of money you will end up saving from ditching plastic cling wrap and reusing your beeswax wraps will be significant!
