WHY BEESWAX ?
Preserve Food – Our beeswax food wraps are naturally antibacterial, antimicrobial, and anti-fungal. Beeswax food wraps are the only food storage solution with preservative qualities! Our wraps preserve your food longer because of the natural preservative qualities of beeswax from honeybees. They form a barrier of protection around your food to double the period of freshness you can expect. One week of freshness becomes two weeks with beeswax food wraps! The perfect solution for storing your favorite foods like vegetables, fruits, breads, cheeses, cookies, and nuts.
Reduce Plastic and Food Waste – Our beeswax food wraps are biodegradable, easy to clean, reusable, and absolutely beautiful. Toss out the plastic bags and cling wrap forever!! Check out the videos on the website for instructions on making bags, cleaning your wraps, and more!

Lettuce + Avocado
Beeswax food wraps will extend the life of fruit and vegetables for longer.
For example, if a typical head of lettuce keeps for 5 to 8 days without beeswax, it can last closer to 12 to 15 days inside a beeswax food wrap.
We all know avocados turns brown within a few hours of cutting it in half, but if you wrap it in beeswax the other half will remain green and appetizing for days instead of hours.
Bread + Cheese
Wrap an entire loaf of freshly baked bread for the best way to keep bread fresh and nutritious without baking preservatives into the food.
Cheesemakers have been showing us the preservative benefits of beeswax for generations with the wax they use on the outside of large wheels of cheese. Beeswax food wraps wrap around any shape of cheese and can keep cheese fresh and delicious for longer.
Food Covers + Storage for Berries
Beeswax food wraps are also the perfect reusable cover for leftovers! We recommend waiting until hot food has cooled before covering with beeswax.
Store your berries in a glass or Pyrex dish with a beeswax cover, and double the freshness of your berries!
Hint: Try using glass containers to create windows so you can see what is inside the storage container.
