Today is a great day! It is the day of Thunder over Louisville, and it's going to be in the 80's outside which has been on everyone's wishlist after the winter we had! It is also the day I get to tell you all about one of my new favorite eco-friendly home products!
I have been absolutely in love with this product since the minute it landed in my mailbox back in March and I use it for everything I would use plastic wrap for previously. This amazing find is Bee's Wrap! (You may have seen this on my Instagram feed if you follow me there.) I bought mine on etsy, but they have a website as well.
If you have never heard of it before, here is a little snippet from their website to explain all about them:
"Bee's Wrap is organic cotton muslin infused with beeswax- a perfect alternative to plastic for food storage. The warmth of your hands molds the Bees Wrap to the top of a bowl or dish, keeps a piece of cheese, the end of a cucumber, or half of an onion fresh. The Bee's Bread Wrap is large enough to wrap a loaf of bread, keeping it fresh longer than you want it hanging around. The antibacterial properties of the beeswax help keep food fresh and allow the Bee's Wrap to be used again and again."
I have known of Bee's Wrap for quite a while and have been saying I was going to buy it, but I finally took the plunge in March and got the 3 pack set and it has been wonderful! My bf and I are really trying to replace throw away items such as plastic wrap, paper towels, etc, with reusable ones and I knew I was going to love this. I use it to cover my glass mixing bowls to keep a salad in the fridge, to cover dough while rising, to wrap sandwiches, and then you just wash it with a little soapy water and lay flat to dry!
It really does mold to whatever you use it for just by the warmth of your hands. After you cover your item, and stick it in the refrigerator, it hardens so your food is securely covered and stays that way until you pull it out and uncover it. It may be hard for some people to believe that they can live without plastic wrap because it has been so common for so long, but TRUST ME, it can be done! Painlessly!
Bee's Wrap comes in small, medium, large, and extra large (for bread), and before I know you could get them seperately, but on their website now there is just the 3 pack and a single bread wrap. The pack that I got included 1 small (7"x8"), 1 medium (10"x11"), 1 large (13"x14"), for only $18.00.
If you think that is too pricy for food storage, just think about it like this. A box of plastic wrap costs anywhere from $3-$5 for around 100 ft. If you are buying it 4 times a year, you already spent $12-$20 on throw away wrap when this wrap can be reusable for years. I think that's a pretty good deal!
I have been LOVING my Bee's Wrap, and I am actually thinknig of getting a second set but haven't decided yet. I have also found an easy way to store mine, by hanging it with a heavy duty paper clip on my wall with my rolling mat! It keeps them nice and flat and easy to grab.
In honor of Earth Day, right now Bee's Wrap is sending out a free pack of wildflower seeds with every purchase to help feed the bees! How cool is that? If you are interested in trying Bee's Wrap, now would be a great time! For the whole month of April all US shipping is free, to Canada is $5.00, and $10.00 on all international orders!
