How to use Honey Bee Wrap — The everyday 3 step process

Honey Bee Wrap is great for all types of vegetarian food. It is particularly good for keeping bread, cheese and leafy greens (especially herbs) fresher for longer

Wrap | Rinse | Reuse

Use the warmth of your hands to soften the Honey Bee Wrap, fold it around food or over a container and use your fingers to press and seal. When the wrap cools, normally within a few seconds, 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


How to use Honey Bee Wrap — The 5 step Zero-Waste Loop

1. WRAP, COVER or FOLD

  • Wrap around food, cover bowls of leftovers or fold into a useful snack pouch

  • Honey Bee Wrap works best wrapped against itself. It is also great with ceramic and stainless steel bowls but if you cover wooden or glass bowls, there might be a little residue left on your bowl (you can easily remove this afterwards)

  • You never need to cut your Honey Bee Wrap

2. then WIPE CLEAN, AIR DRY and REUSE

  • The ingredients that we use are naturally anti-bacterial so you always use cold water to wash Honey Bee Wrap. Hot water will damage your wrap

  • Don’t scrub, don’t wring and don’t throw away

  • Always drip dry. Never put in the dishwasher or washing machine

  • You may choose to store Honey Bee Wrap on a kitchen counter for easy access but never store near a gas stove

3. occasionally REFRESH

We provide clear and simple instructions on how to do this. By refreshing your wrap, it means that your Honey Bee Wrap stays naturally adhesive for longer

4. eventually COMPOST (or return to us for a coupon)

  • Honey Bee Wrap is completely biodegradable

  • Completely handmade with all natural ingredients— it is non-toxic and food-safe

5. then REPLACE and REPEAT to close the zero-waste loop

Continue to be single-use plastic-free while supporting our family business and the UK charities that we donate to

Actual product contains detailed written use and care instructions



5 reasons to choose Honey Bee Wrap

  1. Reusable

    Say goodbye to single-use. Honey Bee Wrap is reusable many times and we encourage you to use it daily. You can get the best value from your Honey Bee Wrap by occasionally refreshing it to keep it naturally anti-bacterial and adhesive for longer. With proper care and regular use (a few times a week), Honey Bee Wrap is reusable for about a year

  2. Plastic-free

    Ditch the plastic and keep toxic chemicals away from your food. Honey Bee Wrap is completely natural and allows your food to breathe which makes it harder for bacteria to grow whereas plastic wrap and aluminium foil do not as they are air tight

  3. Zero Waste

    Honey Bee Wrap dramatically reduces food waste compared to plastic wrap and aluminium foil. Honey Bee Wrap and its packaging (made from recycled post-consumer waste) is also eventually biodegradable. Honey Bee Wrap is entirely eco-friendly— unlike plastic wrap and aluminium foil. The inks for the designs are food-safe. It is kind to the planet as well as effective at reducing your food bill

  4. Naturally Anti-bacterial

    Honey Bee Wrap is always handmade with only 3 natural ingredients. Honey Bee Wrap is naturally anti-bacterial so you always wash it with cold water

  5. Naturally Adhesive

Tacky not sticky, Honey Bee Wrap is super versatile and allows you to wrap your food, cover bowls of leftovers and fold into snack pouches. Most people find Honey Bee Wrap easy to use from the first time that they use it


What is Honey Bee Wrap?

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 and eco-friendly materials: ethically sourced 100% pure beeswax, natural tree resin and certified organic plant oils.


Why you should start using Honey Bee Wrap

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.


Only 100% pure beeswax is naturally anti-bacterial and is the key to keeping food fresher for longer.

We filter the beeswax that is a by-product of the surplus honey collected from beehives during honey harvests. Surplus honey and beeswax is collected from the Supers (top part of the beehive) and is never collected from the Brood boxes (where the Queen lays eggs and the honey bees store their honey for the winter). This way, the honey bees always have enough supplies of honey and 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), nasty chemicals or preservatives are added- we only use 100% pure beeswax.
