Reduce your plastic waste with reusable beeswax wraps
Love the Earth reusable beeswax wraps by are an environmentally-friendly alternative to single-use plastic wrap and ziplock bags….although Beeswax wraps are ‘breathable’, so food stays fresher for longer.
Lovingly handmade in Byron Bay Australia, our beeswax wraps are made from 100% cotton cloth infused with our special blend of organic Australian beeswax, gum rosin, organic coconut oil, and Australian jojoba oil. Beeswax and jojoba oil are naturally anti-bacterial, coconut oil keeps them soft and pliable, and gum rosin gives the wraps their ‘stick’.
So versatile and easy to use – wrap cut fruit veges, cover plates and bowls, wrap a sandwich or create pockets to hold snacks for the lunchbox or cover platters of food on a table in preparation for the guests to arrive! When you’ve finished using them, simply wipe with a clean, damp cloth or gently wash in cold water and air dry...then they are ready to use again.
We make our wraps in small batches and have a new drop of fabrics every few weeks, so be sure to follow us on social media to be kept up to date when new products arrive and with other eco-friendly hints and tips.

The carrot experiment
So I chopped a fresh crispy carrot in half, wrapped one half in a Love the Earth Beeswax Wrap, then placed both pieces on a shelf in the fridge for 5 days. Result: the piece in the wrap remained as fresh and crispy as it was on Day 1, the unwrapped piece became a bendy, soft, blackened rotting piece. Keep your veges fresh (and out of plastic) for much longer by wrapping them in breathable, watertight, resuable, eco-friendly beeswax wraps!
21 Day Plastic Purge Challenge
Would you like to reduce the plastic in your kitchen/bathroom/LIFE? I've put together 21 of my top plastic purge items, easily replaced with inexpensive, reusable earth-friendly options 🌏.
Love the Earth Beeswax Wraps are 100% biodegradable, so when they have lived their life (up to 12 months with proper use and care), they can be cut into strips and buried in the garden or compost to become part of the earth again. Or better still, they can be re-waxed using one of our DIY special blend blocks and start their life all over again! Cotton fabric will last for many many years, so re-waxing them is a great zero-waste alternative.
Just how sticky are Love the Earth Beeswax Wraps?
The world doesn’t need a few people doing zero-plastic perfectly, it needs millions of people doing it the very best they can.
