Info: One Multi-Pack of 3 Reusable Wraps
Wrap, wash, and reuse. Plastic bags and wrap can take decades to decompose. Routine use of these plastics adds up, and they aren't recyclable, so this more traditional means of safely transporting and preserving food is an easy, more earth-friendly alternative.
Handcrafted in Manitoba using 100% cotton infused with locally-sourced beeswax, tree resin, and jojoba oil, beeswax food wraps are easy to use, naturally antibacterial, and biodegradable, and thus produce zero waste. Leabee wraps come in packs of three, one each of 12x12, 10x10, and 8x8 inch sizes, and their patterns vary.
* For Fridge or Freezer Storage: Use to cover bowls, plates, or Mason jars for easy storage, or even to wrap foods directly (as long as their surfaces aren't too wet), such as a group of strawberries, or half an avocado. A wrap can be used in the freezer for short-term storage of one month or less.
* To cover food or a container, use the warmth of your hands to shape the wrap around the food or the edges of the container, as shown here. The material is malleable at room temperature, and sticks to itself and many other surfaces.
* For School Lunches: Wrap sandwiches and snacks for zero-waste lunching.
* For Take-Along Snacks: Wrap crackers, nuts, cheese, fruit, and baking for eco-friendly convenience. (They can even be folded into an envelope shape for that purpose.)
* These wraps can even be used as non-stick mats for rolling out dough.
* Rinse with cold water (avoid hot water - this melts the wax), or wipe with a cool, damp cloth.
* To wash, use COLD water. The beeswax coating will be stiff, making it more like washing a plate than a piece of fabric. The sturdy wrap can handle a light scrub with a dishcloth or sponge, even the use of a mild dishsoap if need be. Dry with a towel or drip dry. Do not wring.
* Store where not overly warm – it can be lain flat, folded, or rolled up to store.
Each wrap lasts about a year, with regular use.
* Beeswax will melt if exposed to heat, so do not use in ovens, microwaves, or dishwashers.
* Avoid direct contact with meat or wrapping excessively wet items.
