There’s no denying that a lot of packaging waste comes from the kitchen. But according to an article on Polymersolutions.com, the tide appears to be shifting to a new way to store and package food. Take the plastic cutlery ban in France, for example; or the drinkable ‘plastic’ bag. These are just two of the examples recently making headlines about sustainability, and we’re about to add one more new innovation to the list — Bees Wrap.

Founded in 2012 by Sarah Kaeck, Bees Wrap is a saran wrap and plastic bag alternative. It all started with one question: “How could we eliminate plastics in our kitchen in favor of a healthier, more sustainable way to store food?” The answer was found in a lost tradition of infusing organic cotton with beeswax, organic jojoba oil and tree resin. The result is a reusable and washable food storage alternative.

You may be wondering how Bees Wrap clings. After you wrap a product or cover a bowl, you simply seal it with the warmth of your hands. Once it is put in the refrigerator and cools it keeps it shape, clinging to the product. A little bit of cold water and soap is all you need to clean Bees Wrap so it’s ready for its next use. The product comes in a variety of sizes and prints; and is perfect for storing snacks, fruit, loafs of bread and vegetable. Used several times a week, Bees Wrap has a lifespan of approximately one year.
