The month of July brings many great things… Lovely sunny weather, family days out, and more time to enjoy ourselves over the summer. The month of July also brings us Plastic Free July; an important movement for you to help save our beautiful oceans, great communities, and work towards achieving cleaner streets.
It’s easier than you might think to reduce your use of single-use plastics, including the way you keep your food fresh and tasty. So, it’s time to cut out clingfilm and allow our beeswax wraps to help you achieve a more environmentally friendly approach throughout July - and hopefully beyond!
What makes our beeswax products environmentally friendly?
First of all, with our products you’re able to “Wash, Wrap, Reuse”. So, once you’ve made a sandwich, wrapped it up, and eaten it, you can do it all over again and again and again without having to throw anything away unnecessarily.
Plus, our beeswax wraps are all 100% biodegradable - as we’re avoiding any use of plastics completely.
The beeswax and jojoba oil we use in our products also make each food wrap breathable, easy to wash, compostable, and, as an added bonus, looks extremely pretty!
How can our beeswax wraps help you towards an environmentally-friendly lifestyle?
Instead of shopping for fruits and vegetables packed in plastic containers, try shopping for loose produce from your local fruit and veg shop. Then simply wrap it all up securely when you get home to retain its freshness using our beeswax products.
When planning your work lunches, instead of buying a sandwich at the supermarket, why not prepare one at home and wrap it up to eat the next day? What’s also great, you can fold our beeswax wraps to create snack bags and boxes. Perhaps you wish to take along some fresh grapes to eat with your sandwich… Simply make a nifty storage box for your fruit, and you’re ready to go. Watch our How To videos here on how to wrap up your food properly.
There are many other ways to reduce your use of single-use plastics. Why not consider having fresh milk delivered to your door in glass bottles, opt for a reusable water bottle, or switch out regular tea bags for loose leaf tea? Yes, who knew tea bags contain plastic!
Whichever way you can help, come and join the 326 million other people doing their bit towards this important movement. Your small changes make a bigger difference than you think!
