We are a plastic-free and zero-waste family business.

Plastic-free: Our products and their packaging do not contain any plastic. We even wrap deliveries in brown paper and use kraft tape (avoiding single-use plastic like bubble envelopes and sellotape).

Zero-waste: Zero-waste is a concept where the main goal is a sustainable lifestyle through a circular economy (see the graphic below by Circular Flanders). This means swapping single-use plastic products for reusable products (like our beeswax wraps and candle stand) and biodegradable products (like our candles, beeswax wraps and eco-friendly fire starters) so that nothing needs to go to landfill. It’s not the same as minimalism but you will find that you will naturally buy less each week once you start using reusable products.

Our global economy is currently mainly a linear economy but it only takes a few small changes to live sustainably.

Plastic-free | Zero-waste | Biodegradable

Truly eco-friendly

  • The beautiful, bright glow of a lit beeswax candle is on the same light spectrum as sunlight

  • We only use beeswax that is the by-product of surplus honey; the honey bees always have enough honey

  • For every 1 lb (450g) of beeswax, honey bees have to collect nectar from nearly 33 million flowers

  • 75,000 honey bees work together to make 1 lb (450g) of beeswax

100% pure beeswax candles

We filter the beeswax that is a by-product of the surplus honey collected from beehives during honey harvests. This way, nothing is wasted.

We support ethical beekeeping and its values so our beeswax is cruelty-free and from a sustainable source. The beeswax that we use is straight from the beehive- no other type of wax (e.g. soy or paraffin), no nasty chemicals and no preservatives are added- we only use 100% pure beeswax.

The reusable alternative to single-use plastic: Beeswax Wraps

Honey Bee Wraps are beeswax food wraps which are the sustainable, reusable and natural alternative to plastic wrap and aluminium foil. They are a plastic-free way to keep your food fresher for longer and perfect for a zero-waste lifestyle. They are naturally adhesive, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal without any nasty chemicals. Each beeswax wrap is handmade by us (a family business) using simple, food-safe and eco-friendly materials: ethically sourced 100% pure beeswax, natural tree resin and certified organic plant oils.

Beeswax food wraps prevent an estimated 480 metres of plastic wrap going to landfill and into our oceans per year (based on a family of 4 using 24 packs of 20 metres). This is a great way to reduce food waste as the cotton material allows some of the moisture to escape and your food to breathe which means that bacteria have to work harder to decompose your food; this means that your food should stay fresher for longer wrapped in beeswax food wraps compared to plastic wrap or aluminum foil. We've found that we save money in the long run on our grocery bill as less food is wasted at home by using beeswax food wraps. Beeswax food wraps are biodegradable.

Beeswax Wraps

Natural beeswax is an incredibly versatile material with unique properties

It is an integral part of the beehive as it provides structure to the beehive and it is a vital part of nature's original food storage as it is naturally anti-bacterial and anti-fungal

Beeswax Wraps are handmade, plastic-free and the natural alternative to plastic wrap and aluminium foil

24 million slices of bread are wasted everyday in the UK alone. Beeswax wraps reduce food waste as the cotton material allows some of the moisture to escape and your food to breathe which means that bacteria have to work harder to decompose your food.

These are the sustainable and reusable way to naturally keep your food fresh for longer.

How to use beeswax food wraps: 

  • WRAP, COVER or FOLD

  • then WASH and REUSE

  • occasionally REFRESH

  • eventually COMPOST (or return to us for a coupon)
