WHO ARE WE?
Bee Our Guest was founded in 2019 by Adriana and Peter Fitzgerald in Chester County, PA. Everyday, we produce local beeswax food wraps that preserve food, keep food fresh for longer, and reduce single use plastic. At Bee Our Guest, we believe the world already has enough plastic and we waste entirely too much food in our homes.
The beeswax food wraps we produce contribute to a more sustainable, intentional, and waste free world for the good of everyone and our natural ecosystems. We are initiating the change by recovering a lost tradition. With our small batch beeswax food wraps, we produce handmade, reusable, and freshly made beeswax food wraps that extend the freshness of food while reducing our dependence on plastic.
For us, it all starts with local beeswax from beekeepers we know close to our home in Chester County, PA. By purchasing local beeswax from the beekeepers supporting our pollinators, we wake up every morning knowing we are protecting our local pollinators and ecosystems with a sustainable business model with minimal waste.
OUR INSPIRATION STORY
Our journey began on our honeymoon to Australia in early 2019. We challenged ourselves to not use, purchase, or otherwise collect any single use plastic while traveling for six weeks on a road trip across the Australian continent. Not only did we complete our challenge to ourselves, we also realized plastic could ALWAYS be replaced with human intention!
Both of us had complained about single use plastics for years, but when we returned home from the honeymoon, we decided to take action. Changing our daily habits may be the hardest thing we ever do as humans, and we hope you are up to the challenge!
Beeswax is nature’s preservative – naturally antibacterial, antimicrobial, and anti-fungal. We utilize these preservative qualities by infusing local beeswax into organic cotton fabric.
Reusable – The beeswax food wraps we produce are reusable for one to two years! And at the end of their use, send them back to us for re-waxing and restore them for another one to two years! Our goal is sustainability after all!
Once we realized for ourselves that beeswax food wraps preserved food for longer AND reduced single use plastic, there was no looking back!
