Let's make some fabric beeswax wraps! These handy wraps will make your kitchen more earth friendly by helping to keep your food lasting longer and staying fresher, all while using less plastic. These natural wraps can be used to wrap and save food, and to package food to take out with you. When we use natural and reusable items like beeswax wraps, we live more nature-friendly and use less plastic.
People in Latvia have always used different products from bees, such as honey, propolis, ambrosia, and of course wax. Out of wax, people would make candles to keep their houses illuminated. Wax was also used to make clothes water-resistant. Wax wraps were also used to wrap and cover food. Long before people started to use plastic for wrapping their food, they were using waxed paper and waxed textiles. Beeswax is antibacterial and allows you to keep your food fresh and clean longer.
Beeswax wraps can be used to cover food. Fruits, such as a piece of apple, or vegetables, such as a cucumber, do well when wrapped in beeswax. Beeswax wraps can be used to wrap your sandwiches when going to school or work. They can also be used to cover a plate, bowl or a jar just like you would use plastic like Saran wrap. It is particularly good for wrapping cheese.
I started making and using beeswax wraps a few years ago. I'm absolutely happy that I can decrease the amount of plastics or foil used and be more nature-friendly and live a ZERO waste life.
