I was listening to Green Is Good on Stitcher the other day, as I often do during the workweek. John Shegerian was interviewing Sarah Kaeck, founder of Bee’s Wrap. As with so many of John’s guests, I was instantly delighted with what Sarah had to say.
For a long time, I have struggled to find an alternative to plastic wrap. I usually go out of my way to ‘re-wrap’ food by putting it into a reusable container, but it isn’t always the most convenient thing to do. Sometimes, the bowl I am preparing something in is the one I want it to stay in and all I need is something to seal the top.
In comes Bee’s Wrap. The warmth of your hands is all you need to seal this magical cloth on your bowl (or, lemon, or cheese, etc.). According to Bee’s Wrap, it is “made of organic cotton muslin, beeswax, jojoba oil, and tree resin. This combination of ingredients creates a malleable food wrap that can be used again and again.” That’s the key…did you see it? Again and again. Like music to my ears. No more impossible-to-clean-and-reuse plastic wrap! Also, when the Bee’s Wrap reaches the end of it’s life, it can find a new home in your compost pile.
