Our Beeswax Wraps Cheese Pack is the perfect starter kit to help you eliminate clingfilm from the kitchen. Wrap sandwiches, leftovers, cheese, half an onion, lemon, cucumber...anything you would normally use clingfilm for.

Also, they can also be used to wrap around the tops of tins, bottles to seal the top, bowls & plates, or used to wrap bottles for travel to avoid any spillages. Tuck one in your handbag for a clean surface on desks and tables. Or use in your travel/gym bag to wrap a soap bar, sponge or shampoo bottle.

 

About our Beeswax Wraps

Our beeswax wraps are lovingly made in Northampton by GoodToBee, a family business with the same ethos as us at Vera-Bee - zero waste and zero impact. Made from 100% organic cotton with no nasty chemicals, just natural ingredients, and the sublime beeswax is from local beehives supporting our community of bees....what's not to love!

 

How to Beeswax Wrap

Tuck, fold, and shape around food, plates and bowls creating a breathable seal. At home in the fridge they will harden up even more keeping food naturally fresh for longer. And because the beeswax makes them slightly sticky, you can mould them to any shape.

 

Love and care for your Beeswax Wraps

A quick rinse with cool water and maybe a little dish soap, like our Vegan Zero Waste Dishwashing Bar is all they need. Hang to dry naturally over the dish rack and you’re ready to use them again and again. Fold them for storage in a drawer or they look beautiful rolled up in a jar on the worktop. Avoid heat and flame and do not use in the microwave. Do not use on raw meat or fish and make sure food and bowls are cold before wrapping.

 

Keeping them going strong

If your Beeswax Wraps start to look a little tired after a few months, no problem. Simply lay them on a baking sheet and place them in a preheated medium oven for two minutes. Lift them out and carefully hold them up quickly to dry in seconds. They are now re-pasteurised, refreshed and looking good as new. Loving your wraps like this every few months means they will give you about a year’s worth of hard work. Just think how much plastic you’ll save! Once their wrapping days are over simply pop them on the compost heap or scrunch them up to use as firelighters.

 

About GoodToBee

It all began with the plastic challenge. An enjoyable but relatively undramatic experience that ended up changing my life. When we started the plastic challenge I thought it would be impossible to reduce our plastic usage by very much. We were already taking our own bags to the supermarket and using reusable water bottles, what else could we be doing? However, as I sat there amidst our – all be it small – pile of environmentally toxic waste I decided enough was enough.

An internet search introduced me to beeswax wraps, a sustainable alternative to plastic. A natural way to keep food fresher for longer and with no toxic load to the planet. I was intrigued! I love fabric, I love bees even more and here was something I could make myself. My kitchen became my testing ground and then research, research, research to find the perfect recipe. Calling them beeswax wraps is a little misleading. You need a combination of wax, for durability, jojoba oil to make them antibacterial and supple and tree resin to create that perfect cling! Get the mix wrong and you can end up with cracking wax or a cling that a limpet would be proud of! Finding that sweet spot took time but eventually a GoodToBee wrap that performed perfectly everyday, day to day, came to be.

With GoodToBee I had the chance to create something from start to finish. Not just the wraps but a commitment to myself, and everyone else. Everything I now do and in every way I can, I will be as sustainable, ethical and low impact as I can be. Our fabric is  Global Organic Textile Standard. The beeswax is sourced from sustainable local hives just a few miles away, and we use only organic jojoba oil. Our packaging is recycled post-consumer waste and my beautiful stamp is made from sustainably managed oak with a sapling being planted for each one the company makes. And we never use plastic in anything we do.
