Why Use Beeswax Wraps?

Posted by Lynette Phillips on


1. Beeswax wraps last ages + save you money

Reusable products are long-lasting, helping reduce waste and save money. Beeswax wraps are reusable and last up to a whole year.

If the average family uses 24 rolls of cling wrap a year, that’s approximately $100 worth of cling wrap over the year.

The average cost of a kitchen four-pack of beeswax wraps is $30.

2. Beeswax wraps helps food stay fresh longer

Plastic is a durable material, but it’s not breathable meaning it can cause fresh foods to get hot and wilt.

Beeswax acts like a natural barrier (similar to how the skin of a fruit protects the flesh), but it’s still breathable so food stays fresher, longer.

3. Beeswax wraps are biodegradable

Over time the protective coating on your beeswax wrap will wear away.

Once your beeswax wrap has come to the end of its useful life simply bury in the backyard.
Unlike plastic cling wrap, beeswax wraps will biodegrade.

4. Beeswax wraps reduce waste + protect wildlife

Waste, particularly plastic waste is a big problem for the planet and local wildlife.

Looking for sustainable alternatives for plastic is a great way to reduce household waste and the potential for plastic to cause problems in the local environment.

Switching from plastic to beeswax is one less plastic pollutant in the environment.

5. Beeswax has anti bacterial properties

Like honey, beeswax has been shown to have antimicrobial properties that help keep things clean which is great when dealing with food.
