Looking for a plastic free alternative to clingfilm? Yep. This pack contains three mixed size beeswax wraps (33 x 33 cm, 26 x 26 cm, 18 x 18 cm). You can use them to wrap around your loaf of bread (and it'll stay fresher than it would in plastic), stop vegetables from deteriorating so quickly or keep leftovers happier and tastier.
They're super easy to use and to mould with your hands. Once cold the wrap holds its shape and these should last at least a year. Oh, and just off the top of our heads, they're made from GOTS certified organic cotton, printed with low impact dyes, infused with beeswax, tree resin and organic jojoba oil.
Tips: you can wash them using cold water, but avoid using with raw meat and fish, and don't pop in the dishwasher or microwave. You can even reshape them by ironing between two sheets of greaseproof paper every now and again. Just make sure you peel away while still wet and hold aloft until dry.

WHO ARE BEEBEE WRAPS?
Kath set up BeeBee Wraps from her very own kitchen at the beginning. Back before plastic was used everywhere, it was an old craft to preserve food using cotton coated in beeswax. Now using her tried and tested technique, she and her team design contemporary wraps that are ethical and sustainable. Working with beekeeping communities, BeeBee Wraps pride themselves in being completely biodegradable, to the point where once completely worn out, you can just add them to your compost heap.
