"BEEcause We Care" Beeswax Wraps are:
Reusable for a minimum of 1 year*
100% Croatian Beeswax
100% Croatian Olive Oil
100% Croatian Pine Resin
Our Beeswax Food Wraps are an excellent, eco-friendly alternative to plastic food wrap, plastic food bags, and aluminium foil. Our wraps are made, using 100% cotton, 100% local Croatian beeswax, homegrown olive oil and pine resin - components and ingredients that you can feel good about using.
As they are made from beeswax, they are naturally water-resistant, reusable for at least a year when cared for as directed, biodegradable and essential to your kitchen!
As we strive with all of our products, beeswax wraps are made with sustainable components and ingredients that you can feel good about using. I love that each little wrap contributes to saving our oceans, wildlife and our environment from deadly plastic.
Don´t get me wrong, I am not perfect in my habits but I am trying day by day to lessen my imprint on this planet. Like so many things in life, when each individual contributes we are powerful. Just like the beautiful bees who provide our wax.
We try our best to have as small an impact on the bee colony as possible during the collection of the wax. The wax is completely pesticide-free, no chemicals are used during the cleaning process and the local beekeeper is rewarded with healthy, productive hives.
Why use Beeswax Wraps?
While recycling is a big part of keeping our environment safe and clean, reducing consumption is more impactful.
The most important and easiest category of waste we can reduce is single-use plastic.
It is estimated that over 50% of plastic created is single-use plastic.
This is plastic that is created to be used one time only and then thrown away - such as plastic bottles, plastic takeaway coffee lids, straws and plastic food wrap.
With over 10 million tonnes of plastic ending up in the sea every year, it is important that we all try and reduce our plastic use and do what we can for the environment.
Single-use plastic, due to it mostly being lightweight, can travel great distances by the wind alone, having a far greater reach of contamination than their size would indicate.
The manufacturing process of plastic is a huge source of pollution to the environment. Large amounts of fossil fuels, namely crude oil, are needed for its creation and transportation.
Marine biologists record fish consume thousands of tons of plastic annually, even if it is eaten, these plastic products can ensnare wildlife and end their lives by immobilizing or strangling them.
This contamination doesn’t go away when these fish are consumed by other animals either. The fish dinner you have this week could contain traces of last month’s grocery bags along with the chemicals associated with them.
