If you are looking for ways to cut down your use of plastic, it’s worth considering environmentally friendly beeswax wraps. I’ve been using various brands for a few years now and while they don’t completely replace clingfilm in my kitchen, they do cut down my usage. That not only helps to save the planet, it also saves me money because beeswax wraps can be used over and over again for at least a year. WaxWrap is a new brand to me, but I love that their range includes wrap on a roll so you can cut to the size of your own bowls and wax bags that are perfect for sandwiches.
For covering things like cheese which really don’t keep properly smothered in clingfilm, a beeswax wrap is just perfect. And, they work well to wrap bread and rolls. You can also mould them over the top of jugs and bowls and use them as flexible covers for soups, stews or bowls of fruit and vegetables.
If you make up a lunchbox for work or school, the wraps are perfect for sandwiches. In fact, they are so useful that WaxWrap who have sent me a set of wraps to try out actually have the first WaxWrap on a roll so that you can cut sheets to your own size. WaxWrap is made from 100% natural organic certified cotton and beeswax together with pin resin and organic certified jojoba oil. So you’ll find the covers are flexible and malleable, perfect for all sorts of things in your kitchen.
Zero Waste Week is coming up at the start of September, starting on Monday 6th – and there will be focus on how we can all improve our carbon footprint. Did you know that in the UK, each person throws away five times their own body weight in waste per year and while we are all getting better at recycling, reusing and composting, there’s a lot more to do in order to keep things out of landfill. Not only is it a waste of resources, but it also causes damage to the environment because as things start to decompose, but they also produce methane, a potent greenhouse gas.
By refusing things at source, or finding more sustainable alternatives, you can start to live a more zero waste lifestyle. WaxWraps are just one small thing you can do. Not only are they practical, but they are also pretty and, personally, I love the different designs.
