A honey bee...

                        in my back garden

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. 

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 me, Viv Barclay. 

  • Kind on the environment. Only natural, sustainable products are used to make my beeswax wraps. They are reusable, recyclable and compostable, right down to the packaging. 

  • Durable. With proper care, your wraps can last up to 2 years. But that doesn't mean you have to chuck them out after 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! Drop me a line to the email address below and I'll send you the instructions or follow me on Instagram to find out where my next market will be and come and vist me - I'd love to meet you!

If you have any questions at all or you'd like the re-waxing instructions, you can contact me by dropping me an email at

Happy wrapping!
