Reducing our waste

It feels rather fitting to be sharing about Apiwraps beeswax kitchen wraps as Plastic Free July wraps up *wink*

We’ve been making small steps to reducing our waste for many a year now. Our chickens and the compost benefit from our scraps and we love to recycle or upcycle. So when I came across Apiwraps as an alternative to plastic wrap in the kitchen I was rather thrilled.


And it certainly helps that they are so pretty!

Each time I wrap our cheese or a sandwich I feel like I am wrapping little gifts *grin*


So into the details…

Apiwraps are beeswax coated fabric wraps.

They are a wonderful alternative to plastic wrap. And they work a little bit by magic.

You wrap your item like a present, then holding your warm hands to the fabric you seal in the freshness!


I’ve been using our Apiwraps on all our cheese, for school lunches and for picnics!

And they work beautifully {as well as smelling lovely}


Cleaning them is pretty straight forward too. I just use a damp warm cloth with a little dish soap to wipe them down, rinse with cool water and then hang them on a rack to dry.

You can see more tips for caring for them here.


We’ve only had our Apiwraps for a few months and they work as well today as when we got them. It will be interesting to see how long they last, and I’m told they can last around a year, so that is a lot of plastic wrap not going to the bin!


Do you use Apiwraps? Do you have any tips to share?

    !!!!!!!!!! They SEAL?! This is fantastic! I am a big lover and user of plastic-bag-alternatives, have a heap of zippered and velcro canvas bags of various sizes. But am sooooo loving the look of these, being able to wrap things more to size and then for it to seal around it too – awesome!!!!! So you put your big block of cheese just in the wrap and its doing fine? So fab, thanks for sharing will definitely check out! haha you can tell im very enthusiastic about my plastic alternatives, I cannot stand using gladwrap and ziplocks lol

    Oh they are so pretty, and I bet they work better than wrapping the block of cheese in foil that rips and breaks every time you wrap and un wrap!

    Ohhh these are cute!!! I’ve noticed at my daughters preschool just how much waste there is from 20 odd kids lunches each day. These are a very clever idea, more people need to know about this. Sharing & pinning 🙂
