Bee’s Wrap Review – Part 2

If you didn’t read part one, you probably should so: Bee’s Wrap Review – Part 1.

To test out the Bee’s Wrap, i used it to wrap some freshly cut pumpkin last Tuesday. I left it in the fridge until last night (Monday) so it was in there for essentially a week. I was super impressed with the results as you can see in the video below.

I realise i probably should have taken a photo of the pumpkin before i wrapped it (oops) so it was easy to compare the before and after (i know for next time).

Overall i would definitely recommend Bee’s Wrap as a natural alternative to plastic/cling wrap. It’s so easy to use, it keeps food really well – better than plastic/cling wrap, and it’s easy to clean after being used (just a rinse in cold, soapy water and then hang out to dry. Once dry, fold and store for next time).

Bee’s Wrap Review – Part 1

I mentioned on our Facebook page how we had recently purchased Bee’s Wrap, which is a natural alternative to plastic wrap (or cling wrap). I first read about it on Megan’s blog, Detoxinista, here.

So what is Bee’s Wrap? I’ll “borrow” the section from their website.

“Bee’s Wrap was founded in 2012 by Vermonter Sarah Kaeck, a mother of three who has been, by turns, an avid gardener, milker of goats, keeper of chickens, and seamstress. Bee’s Wrap started with a question facing many families and home cooks: How could we eliminate plastics in our kitchen in favor of a healthier, more sustainable way to store our food?

What she discovered is a lost tradition made new again. By infusing organic cotton with beeswax, organic jojoba oil, and tree resin, she created a washable, reusable, and compostable alternative to plastic wrap.”

Sounds awesome to me!

I ordered it about a week and a half ago and we received our purchase in the mail on Tuesday. Nice and quick considering it’s from the USA. This is how they are packaged – really visually attractive, perfect to give as a gift!

I thought a video would be fun to show you what it’s like. There will be a part one (below) and a part two (next week). I’m still new at “vlogging” so bear with me as i get better. I’ve realised i probably need to turn my iPhone around so it’s landscape rather than portrait though!

Below is a picture of the wrapped pumpkin plus 1/3 loaf homemade Rye, Barley and Buckwheat bread that i wrapped (recipe coming soon!)
