10 Benefits of Beeswax Wraps and Bags

1. Sustainable & Compostable

Marcela Joy Beeswax Wraps and Bags from Loveebee are a sustainable alternative to disposable plastic cling film and plastic bags.. An average family uses up to 400 metres of plastic cling film a year so switching from plastic to Beeswax Wraps or Bags is a super way to reduce household waste while helping the planet. Beeswax Wraps and Bags can be reused for up to 1 year. Beeswax Wraps and Bags are also compostable and can go into your compost bin to naturally break down.

2. Antibacterial & Antimicrobial & Anti moldy

Beeswax has natural antibacterial, antimicrobial and anti moldy properties like honey, which makes them ideal for use with food. Marcela Joy Beeswax Wraps and Bags from Loveable contains organic Coconut Oil which also has antibacterial antimicrobial qualities.

3. Economical

As Beeswax Wraps and Bags can be washed and reused for up to 1 year, they are a real economic alternative to plastic cling film also. You save on buying up to 400 meters of cling film a year!

Also, by covering your leftover meals or half of lemon with beeswax wraps so you are cutting down on food waste while saving money. See the picture of our little experiment. An organic lemon. Half of it was wrapped to cling film and another half in Beeswax food wrap. Kept it in the fridge for more than two weeks. Can’t believe it! The half of lemon in the cling film was completely rotten and the half in beeswax wrap was very fresh.

4. Keeps your Food Fresh

Did you see the picture of our little experiment? An organic lemon. Half of it was wrapped to cling film and another half in Beeswax food wrap. Kept in the fridge for more than two weeks. Can’t believe it! The half of lemon in the cling film was completely rotten and the half in beeswax wrap was very fresh.

Beeswax wraps and bags are breathable and keep your food fresher for longer. Plastic Cling Film or plastic bags are not breathable and can accelerate mold growth which you may have noticed when storing vegetables or bread this way. With Beeswax wraps and bags, you can enjoy fresh vegetables and bread for up to 7 days.
You’ll really notice the difference when you wrap an avocado or lemon in a beeswax wrap as opposed to cling film too. The lemon will remain juicy up to 2 weeks and avocado will last up to 4 days. Our small wraps are ideal for these!
