This week I want to introduce you to Bee’s Wrap, a beautiful and sustainable way of storing and transporting food. I first heard of Bee’s Wrap when I started working at Seacoast Eat Local’s markets and was instantly intrigued. The functionality of bees is now helping us in the fight to eliminate waste in food storage! This wrap can replace products like plastic sandwich bags, saran wrap and tin foil, all of which are non-reusable. It can be used to cover dishes, wrap and preserve vegetables and fruits in the fridge, and bundle lunch sandwiches.
Bee’s Wrap is a smooth, honey-smelling invention that can be molded by the warmth of your hands to fit the shape of whichever food you wish to store. Adding to the sustainability of the product are its pure ingredients; bee’s wax, organic cotton, jojoba oil and tree resin. Bee’s Wrap can be reused for up to a year and can be cleaned simply with cold water and soap.
Last week I mentioned in my blog that honey is an antibacterial agent; this component of honey makes it a perfect ingredient in Bee’s Wrap to help safely store your food and keep it fresh. Bee’s Wrap is a local business based out of Vermont. Sarah Kaeck, a hard working mother of three, created this product based around her love for food and her passion for sustainable living. My sister recently had a birthday and I gifted her the 13” by 13” sandwich Bee’s Wrap that she uses to wrap and transport her daily school lunches. After un-wrapping her sandwich, the material is used also as a lovely placemat. Working in a Montessori school, the functionality, sustainability, and beauty of this simple wrap appeals to the children and her coworkers. I am so excited to explore more of Bee’s Wrap products.
