Q: WHY USE BEESWAX FOOD WRAPS?
A: Beeswax has plenty of great benefits, making this plastic-free concept to preserve food an effective no-waste solution.

- All Natural & Biodegradable
- Eco-friendly & Plastic-free
- Food Safe & Sustainable
- Washable & Reusable
- Waterproof & Breathable
Q: WHAT ARE THE SUGGESTED USES OF BEESWAX FOOD WRAPS?
A: Use our beeswax wraps to preserve almost any food, they work best when directly wrapped onto fruits and vegetables. Cheese is one of our favourite applications too! Simply create a mold around your food, or bowl, and using the warmth of your hands, press to create a seal. Do not use on raw meats and keep away from heat, making sure to let leftovers cool before wrapping.
SMALL WRAP 7" x 7" - seal the end of a cucumber, wrap half a lemon or an avocado - even a small snack. Save your onion but not that smell!
MEDIUM WRAP 10" x 10" - store cheese, wrap a muffin or cover a bowl.
LARGE WRAP 13" x 13" – wrap a crusty loaf of bread or stop a bunch of fresh herbs from going slimy (wash as you use them). Seal half a squash, melon or cabbage.
BUTTONED WRAP 13" x 13" – build your lunch, set on the wrap and fold in the corners, toss string around the button and have the best-dressed sandwich in town!
Q: HOW DO I CLEAN MY BEESWAX FOOD WRAP?
A: Wash in cold water using a mild soap as needed.
Simply wipe down with a wet cloth if, for example, it's been used to wrap your lettuce!
Air dry, and fold to store for multiple uses.
Q: HOW LONG WILL MY BEESWAX FOOD WRAP LAST?
A: Beeswax wraps can last from a few months up to a year, all depending on how hard their life has been.
In their second life, they can be repurposed and used to open jar lids, or scrunch them up and make awesome fire starters.
Or just toss them into your compost bin!
Q: WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS OF YOUR BEESWAX FOOD WRAPS?
A: Our beeswax wraps are handmade by infusing 100% cotton cloth with pure Canadian beeswax; food-grade pine tree resin sourced from a family-owned agribusiness where sustainable forest practices are used; and organic jojoba oil.
Each wrap is individually handcrafted, and so is subtly unique.
Q: DO YOUR BEESWAX FOOD WRAPS HAVE A SMELL?
A: Yes! The sweet smell of beeswax :) This smell can differ slightly from batch to batch as the nectar collected by the bees is influenced by the characteristics of the flowers within an 8 km radius of their hive.
However, your food will not take on the smell or taste of beeswax.
Q: WHAT IS THE HISTORY OF BEESWAX CLOTH?
A: Historically beeswax cloth was used for wrapping Egyptian mummies. It has since morphed into a modern-day food wrap, currently being made by numerous producers – or you can make your own too!
Whichever route you take, we are happy you’ve decided to take a step closer towards living minimal waste.
