The environment is an important social issue these days, as it should be. I wish I could be one of those passionate people who are really wholeheartedly dedicated to the environment, but I'm just not. I like to do my part where I can. I almost always remember to bring my cloth bags to the grocery store. I have cut down my paper towel usage ten fold thanks to these sponge cloths, but I don't live my every day life focused on improvements I could be making.
With all that being said, I love to find reusable products to bring into the shop. Although I don't commit my entire life to being an environmental advocate, I do believe that making little steps like this helps. Personally I was using a fair amount of plastic saran wrap in my kitchen. It's not something I used every day, and therefore I guess I never really gave it much thought. So when I found out about beeswax wraps, I knew I had to give them a try. Once I did, I knew I had to carry them.
Sometimes environmental products get a bad rap (pun intended!) because they are not very... how do I put this...? Nice. Their functionality tends to take precedence over their design. BUT thankfully there are many modern forward thinking people in the world who have come up with a solution! Check out these sweet designs:
- beeswax wraps are a natural and sustainable alternative to plastic wrap for food storage
- they protect food from the air and moisture, keeping food fresh
- reusable up to a year
- 100% compostable or you can use them as a fire starter
- made with local beeswax and resin, cotton & organic jojoba oil
- simply use the warmth of your hands to soften the wrap to create a seal & when the wrap cools it holds the shape
- wash in cool water and air dry on a dish rack
- these designs are hella sweet
I think anyone can get behind eco improvements when it brings a touch of Bowie or Alice in Wonderland to the kitchen. What small choices do you make in hopes of having a better impact when it comes to your carbon footprint?
