Bees wax wraps are a reusable alternative to plastic wrap. Change your habits for good by changing to reusable bees wraps for wrapping your food instead of single-use plastic! Then at the end of your bees wraps life, either compost it at home, use it as a natural fire starter or re-wax it using one of our DIY wax blocks to refresh it! The average family uses 24 rolls of plastic cling wrap per year. Unfortunately cling wrap isn’t reusable and is rarely recycled.
If the average family uses 24 rolls of cling wrap a year, that’s approximately $100 worth of cling wrap over the year.
The average cost of a kitchen three-pack of bees wraps is $25-$30.
Beeswax acts like a natural barrier (similar to how the skin of a fruit protects the flesh), but it’s still breathable so food stays fresher, longer.
Once your beeswax wrap has come to the end of its useful life simply bury in the backyard.
Unlike plastic cling wrap, beeswax wraps will break down into compost.
Looking for sustainable alternatives to plastic is a great way to reduce household waste and the potential for plastic to cause problems in the local environment.
Switching from plastic to beeswax is one less plastic pollutant in the environment.
