Why isn't compostable film more widely used?
Rewax your wraps to carry on using them and gain maximum value
change to Beeswax Wraps
Did you know honey bees are the only other life form on the planet, apart from humans, that preserve their food?
Beeswax is amazing stuff. Not only does it preserve but it has antimicrobial properties that have ensured its place in the food industry as a growth inhibitor of nasty bugs.
In short, switching to beeswax wraps as an eco-friendly alternative to cling film and foil means your food will stay fresher for longer. That, in turn, means less waste. What's not to like about that?!
Are they more expensive to buy than cling film or plastic containers? To be absolutely honest, yes they are. However, their value comes in the form of three things:
Handmade in North Yorkshire. Every single one is lovingly made by myself, my daughter, Mar, and my wonderful friend, Sally. A lot of support with the packing is supplied by my 90-year-old dad :-)
Kind on the environment. Only natural, sustainable products are used to make them. The wraps are reusable, recyclable and compostable, right down to the packaging.
Durable. With proper care, your wraps will last around a year or so. But that doesn't mean you have to chuck them out then as they can easily be re-waxed.
As long as the material stays good, revamping your wraps with a little more wax means you can carry on using them. I've met people that have used the same ones for as long as 6 years!
More information about uses, care and rewaxing will follow shortly so stayed tuned :-)
