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.
How to use beeswax food wraps:
WRAP, COVER or FOLD
then WASH and REUSE
eventually COMPOST (or return to us for a coupon)
Use the warmth of your hands to soften the beeswax wrap, fold it around food or over a container and use your fingers to press and seal. When the wrap cools, it will hold its shape. For best results, store leftovers covered in beeswax wraps in the fridge but for food like bread: they are best left wrapped on the kitchen counter. To unwrap, use the warmth of your hands to soften the beeswax wrap then gently unfold.
It is reusable- gently wash by hand with cool water (using a mild soap, if needed) in between uses. Hang to air dry. Store in a cool, dark cupboard or draw- either folded, flat or rolled up. They last longer when you occasionally refresh them, see our product pages for more details on how to do this.
No need for rubber bands or string, our beeswax food wraps are tacky enough to hold their shape but not too sticky to be a nuisance. You may need to hold the seal of the beeswax wrap for a little longer on colder days or in colder climates so that it has enough heat to naturally adhere.
Not suitable for use with (raw or cooked) meat and fish products, cut pineapple (or other fruits with a high acidic content) and hot food (wait until cooled completely). Great in the fridge but we don't recommend the freezer. Not suitable for use near heat sources such as ovens, microwaves and dishwashers. Some food types (like beetroot) may stain your beeswax food wrap but it will still be effective.
We even use biodegradable and naturally adhesive kraft tape instead of plastic sellotape!
Ensuring that our products are totally zero-waste and nothing needs to go to landfill.
