If you're curious about different ways you can replace plastic, pop over to our online shop and read more about our reusable, eco-friendly, homegrown and handmade products and workshops here.
Our Beeswax Food Wraps are an excellent, eco-friendly alternative to plastic food wrap, plastic food bags, and aluminium foil. Our wraps are made entirely plastic-free, using 100% cotton, 100% local Croatian beeswax, homegrown olive oil and pine resin - components and ingredients that you can feel good about using.
Our wraps are a perfect way to store and seal jars, bowls, containers, and all types of food. Use them to wrap sandwiches, cover leftover food and protect food from insects. As an alternative to plastic bags, our wraps can also be used to store snacks and toiletries while on-the-go! As they are made from beeswax, they are naturally water-resistant, reusable for at least a year, biodegradable and essential to your kitchen!
Let’s all do our bit. Each individual effort is one piece of the whole.
