Have you thought about turning your home into an eco-friendly household but aren’t sure where to start? Well, it all begins with ridding your daily routine of single-use items. Slowly incorporating reusable and clean products into your personal space will help you live a more eco-friendly lifestyle, which is good for your community, the planet, and in the long run, your wallet.
Our go-to kitchen essential is the Root + Heart Beeswax Wraps, which come in either a fun wavy design or a classic R+H logo design. The beeswax wraps are meant to replace single-use plastic coverings to reduce your waste with just one simple item that can be used many times over.
What is it made of?
Instead of wasteful plastic, paper, or foil, the Root + Heart Beeswax Wraps are made with all-natural materials. They consist of 100% cotton fabric coated in beeswax and jojoba oil (yes, that’s it). When you use the Root + Heart Beeswax Wraps, you’ll be able to feel good about how you store your food, and on top of that you’ll get a trendy new kitchen accessory. It’s a win-win!
How to use it
Using the Root + Heart Beeswax Wraps is a breeze. Simply use them to cover any bowl or glass like you would with other traditional food storage wrap. The material adheres to itself and to the glass to ensure that all your fruits and veggies stay fresh. You can also use it to wrap up your on-the-go snacks instead of wasting single-use plastic bags.
The wax coating on the wraps is activated by the warmth of your hands, which makes it adhesive. It also gets tackier, and therefore easier to use, after each wash. To wash your wraps, simply rinse them under cold water only (hot or warm water will deteriorate the wax coating). Hang the wraps or lightly pat them with a cloth towel to dry. Lastly, you can store the wraps by folding them in a drawer. It's as easy as 1-2-3!
