Reusable beeswax wraps are the perfect environmentally friendly alternative to cling film. Store fruit and veg, leftovers, sandwiches, cheese and more in 100% natural materials that allow food to breath and keep it fresher for longer.
Not only will you save plenty of single use plastic from landfill you'll save food too. Fruit, vegetables, cheese and left overs all last longer in breathable beeswax wraps. And if you're not keen on using beeswax we have some great vegan alternatives as well.
Abeego is the original beeswax food wrap, invented in 2018 as an environmentally friendly alternative to clingfilm. Made from Beeswax and Jojoba oil infused into a fabric made from organic cotton and hemp these wraps offer a natural way to preserve food without needing to use plastic. Breathable fabric keeps food fresh for longer meaning food waste is reduced.
How to use:
Beeswax food wraps are perfect for food storage and keeping food fresh. You can store anything, from half a lemon to last nights leftovers, and keep sandwiches fresh all day.
They are self adhesive and simply require the heat from your hands to mould to the shape of the bowl or food you are covering.
You can use them in the fridge (or freezer for short periods of time) and because they are breathable the're also perfect for covering bread as it rises, or kefir as it ferments.
A few great food storage uses:
Cheese. Simply remove plastic packing and replace with a breathable beeswax wrap, or take them with you to the deli. Your cheese can breath and will stay fresher for longer.
Fruit. Keep that half a lemon, avocado or apple at it's best. Natural wax wraps behave much like a fruits skin keeping it fresh. Just be aware that pineapple and wraps don't always agree so it's better to put this in a bowl first.
Bread. Your delicious artisan loaf from the market will stay crisp and fresh for longer if you wrap it.
Meat.Wax wraps are great for stopping ham and other cold cuts from going crispy at the edges.
A bonus tip. Beeswax wraps are super handy for helping you open jars.
How to Clean:
Clean using COLD water and a gentle dish soap. You can use a soft cloth or we find rubbing them between your palms great for cleaning both sides at the same time.
Then simply leave them to dry and put them away or reuse.
Less is more when it comes to washing your wraps so if it's not dirty just fold it up and use it again.
The wax will melt if it gets hot so avoid using hot water and keep away from heat sources while drying and storing.
Strong coloured foods might stain the fabric slightly but don't worry this just adds to the character.
Are Beeswax Wraps Environmentally Friendly?
Abeego wraps are 100% natural. They come from the earth and will return to it without trace. Did you know that when they reach the end of their life you can either put them in the compost where they will biodegrade or cut them up and use them as eco-friendly fire lighters for campfires and wood burners?
And because they are designed to be reused over and over again you'll end up saving a huge amount of cling film from going in the bin.
Saving food as a huge impact. Collectively we throw away millions of tonnes of food a year. Not only does wax and cotton offer an eco friendly way to store your left overs but it keeps food fresh for longer so you have more time to eat it.
Abeego is a zero waste company and uses minimal machinery to keep their carbon footprint as low as possible.
