Reusable beeswax wraps are great when it comes to keeping food fresher for longer! Not only are they handy to have in your eco kitchen they are also just as useful when on-the-go, keeping your lunch fresh, ready for when you need to refuel.
Unlike conventional and commercial cling film and food bags that are made from plastic, reusable beeswax wraps are made from only natural ingredients and materials such as sustainable, organic cotton. In order to give reusable beeswax wraps their long lasting coating the natural, organic cotton is infused with natural beeswax, rosin and organic jojoba oil. All the natural ingredients are sourced sustainably and each reusable beeswax wrap is handmade!
The eco-friendly, sustainable way reusable beeswax wraps are made, means they have a lower carbon footprint and also do not release toxins and chemicals like plastic that can be damaging to the environment. Another reason why reusable beeswax wraps are a far more zero waste, eco alternative to plastic cling film is that they are 100% plastic free, chemical free, compostable and biodegradable!
Plastic food storage items such as cling film and plastic food bags can not always be recycled and therefore they end up in landfill and the environment around us. What's worse is that when plastic degrades it breaks down into microplastics which pollute the environment and work their way into waterways leaching any chemicals that were used to make them in the process. Microplastics can harm aquatic life as fish can mistake the microplastics for food, exposing them to health risks.
Reusable beeswax wraps are breathable and contain anti-microbial properties which both help keep food fresher for longer. Did you know? Because plastic cling film and food bags are not breathable they actually encourage the growth of mould and bacteria, this means food will not last as long and not taste as great either.
