Bee’s Wrap: Just like Plastic Wrap, Minus the Plastic

In my kitchen–and in my home in general–I try my best to avoid plastic of any kind. In fact, this past winter I purchased my very first roll of plastic wrap, all in the name of seed-starting. But even if I normally eschew the stuff, that doesn’t mean that I don’t sometimes wish I had an easier solution for covering a big bowl of pasta salad, or protecting a sandwich that needs toting to work. Enter, Bee’s Wrap

Above: Made in Vermont, this miracle product employs an old-fashioned method to modern success.

Above: Sheets of organic cotton muslin get coated in a combination of beeswax, jojoba oil, and tree resin, rendering them reusable wraps for basic food preservation. Just like plastic wrap, minus the plastic.

Above: Bee’s Wrap is available in three sizes. A starter set of small, medium, and large sheets is available for $16.
