Honey Bee Wrap is our version of beeswax wraps: we make it with all natural and completely food-safe materials

What are 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 natural, eco-friendly and food-safe materials.

Why should I use Beeswax Wraps?

Honey Bee Wraps are beeswax food wraps that 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 do I use beeswax food wraps?

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. 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.
