Reusable Sandwich Wraps

Use Beeswax Wraps as Reusable Sandwich Wraps

Whilst plastic bag usage is decreasing in the UK thanks to the 5p plastic bag charge, there is still a long way to go until society stops using them entirely. The UK uses over 2,000 tonnes of plastic every year, with only 44.9% of plastic products recycled in the UK. The amount of sandwich bags that are used and recycled in the UK is currently underreported with no clear numbers available on how many are actually being recycled.

At Beeswax Wraps we recommend you cut out plastic entirely by using our own Beeswax Wraps as reusable sandwich wraps. Below you can find just a few reasons why using Beeswax Wraps makes sense.

1. Why Beeswax reusable sandwich wraps are cost efficient

With the current rates of inflation, the average cost of a box of x60 sandwich bags continues to rise every year. Assuming you purchase x1 box of 60 sandwich bags 6 times a year, you would be paying around £12 every year on x360 sandwich bags while continuing to pollute with plastic.

If you purchase just one of our Small Sized Pack of Beeswax Wraps that last you over a year, you will be saving £2 as well as helping the environment!

Using figures from Mysupermarket you can see that the price of sandwich bags is only going to increase with the rate of inflation, as well as any predicted taxes on top of plastic products. Making an investment in a pack of Beeswax Wraps the smart option.
