Product Spotlight: Beeswax Wraps

What?

Organic cotton wraps coated in naturally antibacterial beeswax, tree resin and jojoba oil.

Why?

To say goodbye to our throwaway culture! The world gets through an upsetting amount of single-use plastic, but these wraps can be used for up to a year. They're the perfect alternative to cling film and sandwich bags.

Where?

Your kitchen and your lunch box.

Beeswax wraps are great for keeping your sandwiches in one piece until lunchtime, but you can also use them for things like storing cheese in the fridge or covering bowls. Top tip: use them to wrap up leftover bread to keep the cut end nice and fresh.

How?

Use as you would for cling film. The warmth of your hands will mould the wrap to the shape of whatever you're wrapping. To clean them, simply wash in cold, soapy water then leave to drip dry!

Who?

Beebee Wraps is an award-winning Cambridge-based company. The team make their wraps using only organic cotton so that the products contain no pesticides and can be safely put on your compost heap. They work closely with a nearby beekeeper to source local wax, and are just around the corner from the What Plastic team so the finished wraps don’t travel too far either!
