Bee's Wrap Middlebury, VT
Bee’s Wrap was founded in 2012 by Vermonter Sarah Kaech. As a mother, gardener and seamstress, Sarah wanted to eliminate the use of plastic in her kitchen and find a more sustainable method for storing food. She discovered the lost tradition of infusing organic cotton with beeswax to create a washable, reusable and compostable alternative to plastic wrap. This combination creates a malleable, reusable food wrap that is perfect for storing cheese, fruits and vegetables or baked goods.In the beginning, Bee’s Wrap was created by hand-painting wax onto every wrap. Today, they have a custom machine that coats the fabric with beeswax, organic jojoba oil and tree resin. Made by a growing team in Bristol, Vermont, Bee’s Wrap pays close attention to the ingredients used in the production of Bee’s Wrap from start to finish. Bee’s Wrap is made from organic cotton, and their fabric and printing is certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard. Their beeswax is sourced from sustainably-managed hives in the United States, and their packaging is recyclable and plastic-free. Bee’s Wrap is reusable, biodegradable and compostable.
