THE NATURAL ALTERNATIVE TO PLASTIC WRAP FOR FOOD STORAGE
Bee’s Wrap was founded in 2012 by Vermonter Sarah Kaeck, a mother of three who has been, by turns, an avid gardener, milker of goats, keeper of chickens, and seamstress. Bee’s Wrap started with a question facing many families and home cooks: How could we eliminate plastics in our kitchen in favour of a healthier, more sustainable way to store our food? What Sarah discovered was a lost tradition made new again. By infusing organic cotton with beeswax, organic jojoba oil, and tree resin, she created a washable, reusable, and compostable alternative to plastic wrap.
In the early days, they hand-painted wax onto every wrap - for months the comforting scent of beeswax filled Sarah’s home. They’ve since designed a custom machine to coat their organic fabrics with a mix of beeswax, organic jojoba oil, and tree resin. Today, Bee’s Wrap is handmade by the growing team in a Bristol, Vermont, workshop tucked at the edge of a winding river. Since 2012, they’ve created wraps that provide a versatile and durable solution for sustainable food storage.
From start to finish, close attention is paid to the ingredients and materials used in the production process. The fabric and printing is certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard and the beeswax is sourced from sustainably-managed hives in the US, and they use only organic jojoba oil. Bee’s Wrap packaging is recyclable and plastic-free. At the end of the wrap’s useful life in the kitchen, cut the wrap into strips to add to your compost heap, or wrap them around pieces of kindling and use as a natural and effective fire starter.

Bee’s Wrap® is made with organic cotton, sustainably harvested beeswax, organic jojoba oil and tree resin. All wraps are fully biodegradable and compostable.
