Carly & Fran
We are Carly & Fran,
We started trying to live as plastic free as possible in early 2017, Carly was aware of the detrimental effect plastics were having on our environment and I was worried about the effects on mine and my families health, from chemicals that leech from the plastics into our food and drink. The one item that we struggled to replace was cling film. We just couldn’t find anything that we could wrap our food in that would keep it naturally fresh and protected. Carly had mentioned seeing Beeswax Wraps when she lived in Australia so we thought we would have a go a making some as the only ones we could fine were from America or Australia.
After a few ruined irons we finally hit on a really great mix that created beautifully flexible and really well sealing wraps. What we weren’t expecting was the amazing change to the food we stored in them. Not only were our loaves kept really crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside but they lasted 3-4 days longer than when we stored in a bread tin. Our cheese no longer built up a film of sweat when we stored it in the fridge and our salad leaves and herbs were lasting at least 5 days in the fridge when we wrapped them in our Beeswax Wraps. Not only were we saving plastic but we were cutting down on our food waste too.
When we started making Beeswax Wraps we never thought it would blossom into the wonderful business we have now. Our mission is to try and make a small but positive difference in a kind and thoughtful way. We are all just trying to do our best at the end of the day, so we hope you will join us in our little mission to be kind and positive, earth loving people. If you have any questions about our wraps feel free to give us a call on the number at the bottom of the page.
