Alternatives to Cling Film
The devil, and the reason we were so persistent in our making of beeswax wraps! Cling film- or plastic wrap- is one of the worst single-use consumer plastics in the world today.
Bloody difficult to use, hard to successfully cover and seal, and the epitome of everything wrong with single-use plastic. The majority of cling film ends up in landfills across the UK where it does not decompose, doing nothing but pollute.
When we first started making beeswax wraps, it was to find a direct replacement for cling film. We wanted something self-sealing, flexible and non-bulky for covering our sandwiches and leftovers. And we succeeded!
Beeswax wraps are flexible and self-sealing, just like cling film, but they let your food breathe (bye-bye sweaty sandwiches). They are also reusable and completely biodegradable. We use only natural materials to make our wraps. Just pop them in your compost or use as eco-friendly firelighters.
