I was first introduced to beeswax-coated cotton wraps by Suzanne from Green Planet Parties. They quickly became an important part of our food storage regime. They are beautiful, functional, reusable, economical and eco-friendly. And, as I soon discovered, not difficult to make.
I have been trying to cut back our kitchen plastic usage for years. I donít trust plastic especially when it is holding food, and it is simply NOT sustainable. I replaced all my plastic storage containers and zip lock bags with glass or stainless steel ones. Other than the cost, those werenít too difficult to switch over to. The item that I had a greater challenge replacing was plastic wrap. The convenience is difficult to replace. These beeswax wraps, however, have single handedly eliminated plastic wrap from my kitchen. They are great for wrapping cheese, covering dishes, or folding into snack bags. They can even be sewn into small snack bags to be used at school or work if desired.
