Beeswax Food Wraps are a wonderful re-usable alternative to plastic food wraps; reducing the waste and toxic pollutants associated with plastics, while reducing your household use of non-renewable resources. This kitchen starter pack of 3 wraps in varying sizes is hand-made in Australia – from pure Australian beeswax; pure Australian jojoba oil; Certified Organic unbleached cotton; and natural tree resin.
The natural beeswax is sourced from deep forest honey hives and is melted in rain water before being filtered through gold to ensure its purity. The cotton is produced in fair-work conditions and is certified to Global Organic Textile Standards – which have inbuilt social audits. The dyes used for printing are also GOTS-certified and are Azo-free.
Beeswax, which contains inherent antimicrobial and water repellent properties, has been used to cover cheese for centuries and utilised by many ancient civilisations in cosmetic and skin products. Jojoba Oil from the jojoba nut – and technically a wax rather than an oil; is also known for its natural anti-bacterial properties.
This combination of natural waxes and cotton creates an easy to use, pliable fabric that helps to keep your food fresh and allows you to reuse the wraps over & over.
By following the care instructions these wraps will last up to 1 year, after which they can be composted. These convenient and effective food wraps are a great way to cover leftovers, fresh produce, snacks and lunchbox goodies; helping our environment one sandwich at a time. Another great ‘zero waste’ solution.
How to Use:
These ecological reusable Beeswax food wraps can be used to replace plastic wrap in any kitchen application. They are suitable to cover leftovers or fresh fruit & veg before refrigerating. Wrap muffins, cakes and sandwiches for your lunchbox or picnic hamper; cover bowls while activating nuts or soaking pulses.
Wrap home-made pastry to rest in the fridge, or cover a bowl of proving dough mix. Beeswax wraps will become malleable by simply warming them in your hand as you fold around food or bowl. As it cools it creates a seal and holds the folded or wrapped shape. To avoid melting the wraps’ natural waxes, take care to allow hot dishes to cool before covering; and do not use wraps in microwaves or place in the dishwasher.
