Why beeswax wrap?
We all find it easy enough to stash most of your leftovers in glass or plastic storage containers or stick your lunch in the regular lunch box for work that takes up half your bag. There are even occasions when it feels like nothing, but cling film will do! Good old plastic wraps, eh? Do you have half an avocado, or the sandwich you stick into your backpack for lunch? What about the half used onion or cheese that you want to keep fresh but know it will go hard if left alone? Don't you just want to wrap those guys in snuggly plastic blankets that contribute to the melting of our ice caps and the rising of our oceans and the downfall of our planet?
Well, fear not dear reader. For these urges that you, I and others have all had, there is an alternative to plastic: beeswax wrap. These swatches of reusable cloth coated in tacky beeswax can be used to wrap foods, cover bowls, fruit and vegetables (but never fresh meat or fish). The cotton is naturally grown and replaceable, the same can go for the beeswax, jojoba oil and pine resin. Like Captain Planet, when they are all brought together, they become something greater than the sum of their parts.
Beeswax is a great natural substance as it has non-allergenic properties and unlike plastic, beeswax is natural, sustainable and nontoxic. It has anti-fungal and antibacterial properties helping keep things clean and reducing risks of contamination. Beeswax is also waterproof, yet still breathable, protecting your food from getting wet or wilted while locking in moisture, flavour and freshness. In short, it is durable, reusable and practical.
Plus, it is a lot more appealing to the eye.
Our wraps use 100% Oetko-tex cotton, which is a certified non toxin containing fabric. STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is one of the world's best-known labels for textile raw materials, intermediate. and end products (at all stages of production) tested for harmful substances. It stands for customer confidence and high product safety. The fabric is prepped, and hand cut in the Forth valley area, Scotland with certified food grade beeswax, natural tree resin and organic jojoba oil infused together to form your beeswax block.
So we dropped the carboard box for your bee bombs and wrapped them in cotton, dropped in a free beeswax block and hey presto- you have your own beeswax wrap to use.Make your day that bit easier and the planet that little bit better and use your wrap.
