Do you ever scroll through Instagram and constantly see an ad? Well, Bee’s Wrap was one of those ads it got me. I’ve been trying to find more sustainable alternatives fashion but to also everyday items in my life. So when I saw the ad for Bee’s Wrap, I knew I needed to try it out.
Bee’s Wrap is a reusable food wrap that is made out of beeswax, organic cloth, tree resin, and jojoba oil. This mixture of ingredients allows the cloth to be shaped in multiple ways and is the perfect alternative to saran wrap. Plus, it definitely helps that the wraps come with adorable graphics and smell like literal honey. All Bee’s Wrap is made in the United States with American bees and products.
How does their company give back?
In 2017, Bee’s Wrap started to work with the nonprofit, The Bee Cause. The Bee Cause provides children with opportunities to understand, engage, and learn from honeybees. This allows children to learn about honeybees while learning STEAM skills in the process. The alarming decrease of bees is something I’ve talked about on this blog since 2015. As bee rates decrease more and more in recent years, it’s is becoming more apparent that we need to educate people on the importance of bees. If we teach children from a young age about how import bees are, we can help make strides in saving the bees.
How does it work?
With the warmth of your hands, you can wrap the Bee’s Wrap around a piece of food, over a bowl or dish. Once the Bee’s Wrap cools it creates a seal around the item. This is a natural process that allows an item to be protected and transferable. The sandwich works in the same way but you can actually fold the sandwich into the wrap and wrap it with the string.
What sizes does it come in?
The wraps come in six different sizes that are: Small: 7” x 8″, Medium: 10” x 11″, Large: 13” x 14”, Bread wrap: 17” x 23”, Baguette wrap: 14” x 26”, and Sandwich wrap: 13″ x 13″. I purchased one large wrap for my salad bowls and a kit that has one sandwich wrap and 2 medium wraps. The sandwich wrap is my favorite wrap because it has a little bee button to make sure you secure everything in. Also, can we please talk about how cute these patterns are? I love the sandwich wrap because of the adorable bee and bear design.
Does it leave behind residue?
When you mold the wrap onto a bowl it does leave behind a very mild, sticky residue on the rim. This is something that easily washes off once you’re finished using the bowl or dish. It isn’t to the extent to where it would prevent you from using. Since the wrap is made with honey and jojoba oil, it does have a faint sweet smell.
How do you wash it?
After you are done using the Bee’s Wrap you can wash it with cool water and mild dish soap. You don’t want to wash it with warm water because that can affect the beeswax and jojoba oil. Beeswax and jojoba oil have antibacterial qualities that help keep food fresh.
I absolutely love the idea of reusable food wraps because I’m constantly putting my chips inside a plastic ziplock bag. I now never have to reach for one of those little baggies but instead just mold them into my Bee’s wrap. Plus, when you’re using saran wrap (also called satan’s wrap) it takes more time peeling it off from itself than actually wrapping up the food item. Thanks to Bee’s Wrap, I never have to worry about desticking it from itself. So not is it aesthetically pleasing, but incredibly useful.
