Beeswax wraps… but make them vegan! Beeless vegan wax wraps are an incredible plant-based reusable food wrap alternative made from cotton, plant waxes, tree resin and jojoba oil! Say goodbye to wrapping food in plastic and taking wax from hard-working bees, these wax wraps are your go-to for wrapping leftover foods, covering bowls and plates, preventing the chopping board from slipping on the bench, and folding neat creations! Wait. What neat creations do you speak of?! Keep reading to find out!
Vegan Wax Wraps are made by infusing pieces of cotton with a mixture of plant waxes, tree resin and jojoba oil. The waxy coating acts like an adhesive and because of this, the wax wraps become malleable, just like any other common plastic wrap (but without the plastic!). Available in various sizes and patterns including mermaids, sharks, fruits and native plants, we couldn’t think of a better gift for yourself or a gift for a loved one!
Wax wraps make great on-the-go snack pouches. Fold them into a little pouch or pocket to hold snacks such as pretzels or biscuits, or use them to hold tasty treats while you’re taking your pup on a walk. Genius!
How to: Place your wax wrap flat on a bench, fold in half leaving 2.5cm at the top, fold the two sides over twice and secure with the warmth of your hands, open up the top and you have a pouch!
Wrap Around Bars of Soap Whilst Travelling
Have you made the switch to bar soaps? Instead of storing your soaps in pesky plastic bags, use your vegan wax wrap! They take up next to no room in your backpack/suitcase and you can be sure that there’s zero chance of spillage as the wax wrap will keep everything sealed in!
Bowl & Plate Cover
Leftover dinner from last night? Or perhaps you’d like to cover a plate of food whilst travelling to a family or friend’s house? No worries! Grab a wax wrap – the great thing about wax wraps is that they come in various sizes (have you seen our jumbo-size wraps?!) – place it over your plate of food and secure the edges under the plate. The warmth from your hands will soften the wax making it stay in position to keep your food fresher for longer!
Cover Mason Jars, Mugs & Cups
Mason jars are great, but where are all the lids?! Wax wraps have the ability to create nice, tight seals around glass containers, so they make perfect replacements for all those missing lids! Whether you’re storing food in the fridge or you’ve got jars fermenting in the pantry, wax wraps have your back and will keep all your contents contained! What about mugs and cups? So, you’ve run out of mason jars and have had to resort to a mug or two to temporarily hold your goods, we get it… it happens! There’s absolutely no reason why you can’t use your wax wrap to cover them too!
Roll into a Funnel
Missing a funnel? No worries! Your wax wrap can easily be rolled into a funnel shape for filling jars and containers with dry (and wet!) goods. Simply roll the wax wrap into a cone shape and fold the top corner down to make your new funnel stay in place!
