If you’re looking for an affordable and eco-friendly alternative to traditional plastic wrap, beeswax might be exactly what you’re looking for.
Beeswax is a versatile, long-lasting and environmentally friendly alternative to plastic wrap; and it’s also a great way to brighten up your kitchen!
Beeswax wrap is typically made by coating bee’s wax, jojoba oil, and tree resin onto a thin strip of cotton. You use the warmth from your hands to seal the food wrap in place. The heat makes it sticky and malleable so it’s easy for you to mould into place as needed.
Unlike its popular plastic counterpart, beeswax is compostable, reusable, and made of all-natural ingredients. It’s also very easy to use; all you need to do is fold it over your food or container. It’s ideal for cheese, cut vegetable, fruits, snacks and anything you could wrap in plastic, with the exception of some meats. You can also use beeswax to cover bowls and foods, including freezer foods like cookie dough.
If you’re planning to take food out on the road to a picnic or event, you can even fold your beeswax wrap into snack pouches or little envelopes!
