Anyone who frequently cooks or bakes knows just how quickly kitchen waste can pile up. There are the compostable bits—eggshells, fruit and vegetable scraps, coffee grounds—and the trash that can only end up in the bin, like plastic wrap and packaging.
If you try to fill your home with products that are mindful of the environment but have struggled to find a reliable swap for plastic wrap, you’ll be thrilled to learn about Bee’s Wrap.
The company—which is based in Vermont and run by Sarah Kaeck—makes reusable herb and produce bags, along with these handy food wraps. Each one is made from organic cotton, beeswax, and jojoba oil, and uses the warmth of your hands to easily mold around your food. With this kind of versatility, foods of all shapes and sizes can easily be sealed—avocado halves, open containers, wedges of cheese, you name it. As it cools down, it’ll stiffen and seal to keep everything fresh. When you’re done, just hand wash with cold, soapy water to keep the wax intact and then air-dry.
Interested in seeing what our community members think of these reusable food wraps, we turned to the reviews—and the feedback is glowing. Tiger S, a community member whose husband loves to make fresh bread, says it has prolonged the life of their loaves. “We generally end up throwing away a good portion of the bread he makes because it gets hard after just a couple of days. But, wrapped in the Bee’s Wrap, we used both loaves this time!” Tiger writes. “I’ve used the smaller one for crackers, cheese, cookies, etc. Totally worth every cent I spent!” Rachel E, another community member, also says the wraps are ideal for leftovers. “So nice to finally have a good system for packaging up leftovers,” Rachel says. “These food wraps work beautifully and keep my food fresh in the fridge. I’m a huge fan and so glad I made the purchase.”
So, if you’ve been looking for the right moment to make a sustainability-minded swap, there’s no time like the present. Get yourself a bundle of these durable, versatile, and reliable wraps now.
