Food Storage You Can Feel Good About

So much of our food comes from nature, so why do we use man-made plastic to preserve it? A natural combination of cloth that’s coated with responsibly sourced beeswax can help put an end to plastic wrap.

Eliminating plastic waste from our planet takes a village, and changing food storage habits happens one day at a time. By using Bee’s Wrap Food Wraps, you’re one step closer to reducing plastic waste for good.

How do I use it?

Use the warmth of your hands to wrap Bee’s Wrap® around a piece of food or over a bowl or casserole dish. When Bee's Wrap cools—within seconds—it holds its seal. Use your Bee’s Wrap to wrap cheese, vegetables, bread, fruit, fresh herbs, and baked goods. Bee’s Wrap is not recommended for use with raw meat or fish.

What’s it Made of?

Bee's Wrap is made of GOTS-certified organic cotton, responsibly sourced beeswax, organic plant oil, and tree resin. This combination of ingredients creates a malleable food wrap that can be used again and again.

When you first open your package of Bee's Wrap you will smell the beeswax. The scent will fade after the first few uses and washes, until you can no longer detect it. The beeswax scent will change with the season in which it was harvested. Beeswax carries the scent of the flowers from which the bees harvested pollen. Most of us enjoy the scent, but there are a few people who are more sensitive to beeswax and do not prefer it. 

How do I clean it?

Easy! Just wash in cool water with a mild dish soap. Then, drape your wraps over your drying rack to air dry. Remember to avoid all sources of heat, including warm water, microwaves, ovens, hot cars, and covering bowls of not-quite-cooled leftovers.

Bee's Wrap lasts for up to a year with proper care and regular usage. You'll know your wrap has reached the end of its useful life in the kitchen when it has worn thin and soft and has trouble sticking to itself. At this time, you can cut your wrap into strips and add to your compost pile, or use as a natural and effective fire starter.
