Say goodbye to cling film and plastic!

We can all do our bit to help the environment, through small actions. For instance, by replacing cling film, which pollutes our environment significantly and only breaks down very slowly, with natural, ecological “film”. These beeswax cloths, known as “beewraps”, have a wide range of uses in daily life. Another benefit is that they have a wonderful scent of beeswax, and are antibacterial.

We're making « BEEWRAPS » !

You will need:
• Cotton fabric (which should not be too thick)
• 1 cup beeswax (chopped up or as a granulate)
• Baking paper
• A baking tray
• 1 pair of scissors (or pinking shears)
• Pastry brush


And away we go!
Cut the fabric to the desired size. Then lay the cloth onto some baking paper on a baking tray and sprinkle the beeswax evenly over it. Place the baking tray into the oven and heat to around 80 °C, until the wax has melted. You can then remove the tray from the oven and spread the liquid wax over the cloth, using the pastry brush. The material should be thoroughly soaked with wax. If the wax cools down too quickly, you can put the tray back into the hot oven again. Afterwards, leave your “wrap” to cool down.
These beewraps can be used to wrap sandwiches, leftover food, fruit or vegetables, or to cover bowls.
This eco-friendly wrap can be cleaned using lukewarm water.
