That’s a Wrap

Apr 14, 2017

Let me start off by asking how you store your food. In a storage container that’s most likely made out of plastic? In a plastic bag, or plastic wrap of some sort? An overwhelmingly large percentage of us do. I mean it’s too convenient and we’ve been using it for ages. Hats off to whoever stores their food in glass containers though. Unfortunately a lot of our plastic go-to products we use to store food contains a chemical, Bisphenol A, commonly known as BPA. Plastic containers can release chemicals into the food and liquids we store in them. Especially when microwaved, or by simply leaving a water bottle out in the sun. It’s hard to move away from plastic merely because there really aren’t that many options that pose itself available on the market. However, there’s a more sustainable way store your leftovers.

Bee’s Wrap is a coated cotton cloth that’s been infused with beeswax, jojoba oil, and tree resin. The coating makes the fabric airtight, flexible, and slightly adhesive and can be shaped easily around food. This wrap comes in 4 different sizes (small, medium, large, and one designated for bread). It can be hand-washed and reused dozens of times and lasts up to a year. When the wax wears off, simply toss it in the trash. Don’t fret it’s even biodegradable. Also to top it all off, Bee’s Wrap is committed to being sustainable in how their products are produced. Their fabric and printing is certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard, not to mention they source their beeswax from sustainably-managed hives in America and only use organic jojoba oil. They are also a certified company by Green America (a national nonprofit organization that promotes ethical consumerism). So when thinking about how to store your food, beeswax wrap makes a great option. They even ship internationally!


Bee’s Wrapは、蜜ろう、ホホバオイル、樹脂を含んだ綿でコーティングされています。コーティングはその生地を密閉でき、柔らかく、粘着性を生み出し、食べ物を包みやすくします。このラップは4つのサイズ(小、中、大、パン用)があります。手で洗えば何度も再利用でき、1年は持つでしょう。ワックスが落ちてしまったときが、捨てるタイミングです。生(物)分解性だからと言って勿体ないと思わないでください。その上、Bee’s Wrapの製造方法はサステイナブルであることが表明されています。それらの生地と印刷はグローバルなオーガニック生地の基準として認められています。又、Green America(医療消費者運動を援護する国立の非営利団体)によっても認められています。したがって、どのように食物を保存するかを考えた時、蜜ろうのラップは素晴らしいオプションです。海外配送もしてくれますよ!
