A Complete Guide to Reusable Beeswax Wraps

Curious what all the buzz is about? We’re so glad you're here, and we can hardly wait to tell you everything you need to know about beeswax wraps.

From what they’re made of and how to use them to all their amazing eco-friendly benefits, this detailed guide will cover every question you have about beeswax wraps as sustainable storage alternatives.

So grab a cup of tea—with honey, of course!—and we’ll share all we know and love about reusable beeswax wraps below.

What is beeswax wrap?

A beeswax wrap is a reusable, compostable alternative to plastic wrap. It offers a convenient, zero-waste option for food storage that can eliminate single-use plastic products from your pantry. Better yet, these all-natural, breathable wraps keep leftover food fresher for longer.

Maybe you’re thinking about your cabinet full of plastic food storage containers and wondering why you should replace them with beeswax food wraps. Whether eco-conscious products pull at your heartstrings, you’re a practicality maven, or you’re inspired to embrace more sustainable products and routines in your home, reusable beeswax wrap could help you finally kick all those extra lids into the recycling bin.

Read on to learn more about these impressive natural food storage alternatives. We think you may have found your new favourite kitchen treasure — beeswax wraps from Ecologie.

How is beeswax wrap made?

Our beeswax wraps are made with all-natural, FSC-certified sustainable materials to create nontoxic, eco-friendly, reusable, plastic-free food storage options.

The ingredients are simple: cotton coated with beeswax, coconut oil and tree resin.

For added peace of mind (these will be touching your food, after all!), every ingredient comes from pesticide-free sources. Made in Vietnam using sustainable and environmentally friendly practices, our natural food wraps are zero waste and 100% compostable — we’re as green as it comes, with plenty of colours and patterns to brighten up your eco kitchen.

How to use beeswax wraps for food storage

What can beeswax wraps be used with?

Completely safe and nontoxic, beeswax wraps can be used with a variety of foods. Just like honey, beeswax boasts natural antimicrobial properties that inhibit bacterial growth and preserve food’s freshness. Here’s just a handful of ways we love to use our beeswax food wraps:

• Cover a plate or bowl of leftovers

• Pack a homemade sandwich and keep it fresh and tasty

• Wrap up halves of avocados, onions and peppers

• Preserve wedges of hard cheese, such as Parmesan or cheddar

• Help lemons and limes retain their juices

A few more ideas for incorporating our attractive, eco-friendly food wraps in your food prep routines:

• Prevent apple slices from browning by soaking them in salt water, then dry and store in reusable beeswax sandwich bags in the refrigerator

• Maintain the freshness of herbs by rinsing them with cold water, blotting them dry and wrapping single layers in a beeswax storage wrap

• Give half a honeydew the protection of a second skin with the natural composition of a beeswax wrap

• Put a pouch of extra ripe berries or leftover chopped veggies in the freezer and pull it out when it's time to make a smoothie or homemade soup

Why is compostable important?

It’s pretty simple — products made from compostable materials reduce waste and are kinder and gentler on the environment. Composting allows the valuable nutrients found in natural materials to return to the earth’s soil.

Food and compostable goods (like our beeswax wraps) can decompose in a matter of months, while plastic products, including single-use wraps and bags, can take hundreds of years to break down and they never fully decompose. That’s right. All that plastic waste will sit in the environment forever. Gulp.

Making a sustainable choice to incorporate compostable no-waste products into your daily routines can have a measurable effect on the plastic pollutants that impact our rivers, oceans, wildlife and the environment as a whole. Join us in making meaningful changes, one wrap at a time.

Reducing single-use plastics by switching to sustainables

Single-use plastic products, such as water bottles, plastic cling wrap and sandwich or shopping bags, have provided quick solutions to our busy lives. But at what cost?

Each year, 300 million tons of plastics are produced worldwide, half of which are single-use plastics. That’s comparable to the weight of the entire human population on earth. Let that sink in for a moment.

Ready to do your part to help the earth by switching to more sustainable household items? Ecologie beeswax food wraps are:

• Reusable

• Washable

• Nontoxic

• Biodegradable

• Compostable

By choosing a natural alternative to plastic wrap and food storage, you can feel good about eliminating plastics from your kitchen and minimizing their impact on the planet.

Reducing household waste is a worthwhile way to help protect the environment. When you opt for sustainable alternatives to plastic food storage, you’ll realize the impact it can have on your wallet too. Not only do beeswax wraps save you money on rolls of plastic wrap and single-use plastic baggies, their natural antimicrobial properties keep food fresher and prevent spoilage. Less food waste means a happier grocery budget. A win-win for you and the earth!

How to care for reusable beeswax food wraps and bags

After a beautifully useful life, compost your eco-friendly wrap

Reuse your beautifully durable beeswax food wraps again and again for about one year, then add it to your compost bin. That’s it!

The all-natural composition of our beeswax products, including nontoxic inks and sustainably sourced, pesticide-free materials, means it’s totally safe to put into the ground to complete the natural lifecycle. What goes around, comes around, and we believe that’s a beautiful thing.
