What is Honey Bee Wrap?
Honey Bee Wrap is beeswax food wrap. These wraps 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 and eco-friendly materials: ethically sourced 100% pure beeswax, natural tree resin and certified organic plant oils
Why should I use Honey Bee Wrap?
Beeswax food wrap prevents 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
Ditch single-use plastic wrap: Choose to reuse instead
There are chemicals and other types of mixtures that are added to the plastic film through chemical processes to make it into plastic wrap. This makes it very difficult for local authorities to recycle meaning that it is single-use plastic that ends up going straight to landfill
These added chemicals add toxins that are near your food- toxins that are said to leach into your food! BPA (Bisphenol A) is used in plastic water bottles and in most plastic food containers. There are many scientific studies that link these chemicals leaching into food to several serious health conditions
These studies have shown how even hormones are disrupted- leading to potential endocrine disorders including male and female infertility, thyroid dysfunction and cancer
Honey Bee Wrap is handmade using simple and natural materials. It is eco-friendly and non-toxic. It is also reusable many, many times
Aluminium foil- not eco-friendly from start to finish
Aluminium foil is extracted through mining and is then processed through several refining techniques. This type of manufacturing process requires large factories and HUGE amounts of electricity which creates a major amount of waste. It is generally used only once and only some local authorities have the technology to recycle it.
Honey Bee Wrap is a simple swap to stop using aluminium foil. Wrap your sandwiches for school or work in Honey Bee Wrap and make little snack pouches for things like berries or carrot sticks- it’s much more eco-friendly and as it is reusable you will ultimately spend less than buying rolls of aluminium foil so often.
One important point to remember is that Honey Bee Wrap is not meant to be near heat sources and raw fish. Swap the aluminium foil for eco-friendly and biodegradable baking/parchment paper in this case
