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!)

If you’re interested in buying it yourself, you can purchase it from their website. If you join their email list, you get 15% off your first order. And no we weren’t paid by them, this post is completely off our own bat. Like everything we post, we just wanted to share our experience and help others in living a more sustainable lifestyle!
