The People and Planet Friendly Alternative to Cling Film

September 8th, 2018

With the dramatic rise in awareness around plastic and the detrimental effect it is having on our environment, lots of people are starting to look at ways in which they can begin to cut down on their reliance on single use plastics.

Carly & Fran began hand making Beeswax Wraps a reusable and plastic free alternative to cling film and plastic sandwich bags in June 2017. They both had been aware of the plastic issue and were making changes in their daily lives to reduce their plastic use, one problem they came up against was a replacement for cling film. This lead to them experimenting with waxed coated cloth and building their company The Beeswax Wrap Co.

They hand make their Beeswax Wraps in The Cotswolds from local beeswax, 100% cotton, pine resin and organic jojoba oil. Having refined their process to produce high quality Beeswax Wraps they are now stocked in over 40 independent retailers across the UK, they also sell direct to the public from their website www.beeswaxwraps.co.uk .

Following a dramatic rise in the general public seeking out plastic free alternatives, especially after Blue Planet 2, their Beeswax Wraps have been featured in BBC Good Food Magazine, Good Housekeeping Magazine and have also been recommended by The Huffington Post.
