Go plastic free and ditch your clingfilm with a 100% natural food wrap from Bee Green Wraps, made from beeswax.

Go plastic free and ditch your clingfilm with a 100% natural food wrap from Bee Green Wraps, made from beeswax.

More than 1.2 billion metres (or 745,000 miles) of clingfilm is used by households across the UK each year – enough to go around the world 30 times!

Bee Green Wraps come with a stylish and sustainable alternative to plastic clingfilm, produced from Australian beeswax. 

This natural food wrap is compostable, meaning that after a year of use, you can bury them in your garden to decompose (the product is made using dammar resin, a sustainably sourced and durable alternative to pine resin).

It doesn’t easily tear, is water resistant, and is organically resistant as it’s made from thick organic cotton, beeswax, jojoba oil and resin (all are washable as you can just rinse in cold or tepid water to reuse).

The natural wrap is produced on an organic small-holding near Sydney from organic Australian beeswax, and is then imported slowly by boat to keep carbon footprint at a minimum and is packed by founder Katie Tyndale, and her team based in Kirkby Lonsdale.

Not only is the product practical for reducing clingfilm and foil consumption, but Bee Green Wraps have stylish limited edition prints, also making them the perfect gift or your stocking filler(s).

Behind this natural food wrap alternative comes mother-of-two, Katie Tyndale – who was working in a very different world before launching the brand.

‘Before I started this brand, I worked in various roles in Human Resources for Morgan Stanley for 18 years. This is a change of direction, I know!’ she said.

Back then, she noticed the volume of clingfilm, foil and zip-lock bags she would get through each day for packed lunches. Always looking for ways to reduce the amount of waste at home, Katie decided on a natural, organic and compostable alternative to clingfilm in 2018, and launched Bee Green Wraps.

The company has received Highly Commended in the 2019 Gift of the Year Competition and was recently chosen in the Theo Paphitis Small Business Sunday programme. Let’s Go Plastic Free, Katie’s plastic-free lifestyle website, launched in 2019.
