For our wedding, one of our friend’s wrapped our gift in cloth. It was a beautiful cloth, with gold and pink roses on a burnished champagne background. I loved unwrapping the folds of fabric to unveil her gift. We still have the fabric, and I use it over and over.
I fell in love with Bee’s Wrap for the same reason. It’s a sustainable, reusable food storage alternative to plastic wrap and aluminum foil.
The Bee’s Wrap brand hails from The Green Mountain State, Vermont. It’s made of organic cotton muslin, beeswax, jojoba oil, and tree resin. When cared for properly, each wrap lasts a year, and can be composted when its product life is complete (or reused as giftwrap, perhaps).
Bee’s Wraps make wonderful gifts for food lovers and cooks alike. We send a powerful message by reusing material, and that’s why I love Bee’s Wrap.
Bee’s Wrap vs. Aluminum Foil
Now, I’ve learned that aluminum is 100% recyclable, so I wondered: is aluminum more eco-friendly than Bee’s Wrap? I looked into it and I learned the sobering truth: most aluminum we put in the recycling bin is rejected due to food contamination. The means that unless we buy Recycled aluminum foil, we’re likely contributing to the toxic and hazardous aluminum ore mining process.
