How to use Beeswax Wraps as Eco Lids

As you all know, Beeswax Wraps have a variety of uses that make them a key weapon in the fight against the use of plastic. One such use we want to highlight is their use as an eco friendly alternative to plastic lids. Using Beeswax Wraps as eco lids is a great way of cutting back on the use of plastic and cling film.

How to use Beeswax Wraps as eco lids:

  1. Take the Beeswax Wrap you want to use to cover  the container holding the perishable you want to preserve.

  2. Lay the Beeswax Wrap over the container.

  3. Carefully fold the wrap around the edges of the container making sure to use the warmth of your hands to create a tight bind.

  4. Enjoy not having to use cling film or plastics as your eco lid
