The Beeswax Wrap Co.
Founded in the UK in 2017, Beeswax Wrap Co. is an independent, female-led company that was created in a bid to cut as much plastic as possible from the kitchen. The Beeswax Wraps are a natural alternative to cling film and are used to cover leftovers, wrap sandwiches and many other purposes.
The products are handmade and are created with consciously-sourced, natural materials that are re-usable for a year and compostable and biodegradable at the end of their life. The beeswax produced to create the wraps are sourced locally from beekeepers that ensure the bees are well cared for. Alternatively, the brand also produces Vegan Wax Wraps that are certified vegan and plant-based, which are soy and palm oil free. Both products also use organic dyes and GOTs certified organic cotton from a fair-trade family run business in India.
The company offsets their carbon footprint by partnering up with World Land Trust that uses 100% recycled and FSC certified packaging and the inks used are low-impact and vegetable based. Beeswax Wrap Co. is proud to have become B Corporation Certified which has allowed them to work on the eco-credentials throughout the supply chain to reduce waste and carbon impact. Since being part of the B Corp community they have achieved positive goals such as raising over £8,000 for charities since 2018, reducing waste by 20% in the past twelve months and using energy from the solar panels from their workshop roof.
