DO NOT USE IN THE OVEN OR MICROWAVE. DO NOT USE TO WRAP RAW MEAT OR FISH.
BeeBee Wraps are design led, British made beeswax food wraps that offer consumers a reusable alternative to clingfilm. Each wrap is made from GOTS certified organic cotton which is dyed with GOTS certified organic dyes. The fabric is then infused with a formula of British beeswax, European pine rosin (resin) and organic jojoba oil. Using warm hands, the wraps can be shaped around food in place of clingfilm. They can be washed in cold, soapy water, reused for a year, and as a natural product they can be returned to earth at the end of their life.
Kath Austin started the BeeBee Wraps journey in 2016, while on maternity leave with her second child. She was looking for a planet friendly and practical way of storing homemade bread, and when a friend suggested beeswax food wraps she started researching how they were made and making wraps at home. After many months of testing different oils and fabrics she finally came up with the BeeBee Wraps secret formulation, and launched the brand to the market in her Etsy shop in April 2017.
The response was huge and over the next year Kath launched her own website, and took on a small team to help her in her home town of Cambridge. She also decided that BeeBee Wraps should be led by design, making wraps that both have a positive environmental impact and make people happy! This brought about a redesign and the launch of the colourful, exclusive prints and packaging that are a key part of the range today.
The last 12 months have been very busy for BeeBee Wraps with highlights including working with Sky on one of their ‘Sky Ocean Rescue’ products, moving to a bigger ‘BBHQ’, and appearing on the UK’s Dragons Den. With a plant-based vegan wrap in development, the next 12 months promise to be equally exciting!
