Posted By HealthyBuddha on Monday 03rd May 2021

Are you using plastic cling film for food storage in your kitchen ?

Then we say it’s time to switch to a more sustainable option, Beeswax Wraps.


You've probably seen this listed on our website and wondered what it is. So did many others. A poll on our social media showed that over 70% weren’t even aware what these wraps are, how and why to use them.

So we’ve put together a guide to help you switch. Read on..

What are they exactly? Beeswax wraps are handmade with organic cotton and beeswax.

How to use them?


  • Open out the Wraps, Crush them 2-3 times to activate their structure.
  • Once this is done wrap it over a container of food to be stored, or directly over food and seal with a bit of pressure and heat from the hand.
  • Make sure the contents are in a cooled state.
  • You can use them to cover over utensils, wrap your greens and even wrap cut vegetables.
  • Make sure to seal them well on all sides, to maintain freshness.
  • When placed in the fridge, the freshness is maintained until approximately 2 days (but, depends on the freshness of initial contents)
  • After use-age, wash them with cold water, dry them out well and they’re ready to be used multiple times.
  • You could even used a mild soap and gentle scrubbing to clean them, if required.
