I always feel a little guilty when I use plastic wrap, so I found myself in need of a good alternative since I have kids and cook a lot I find my self in the need for food storage pretty often. I do use glass reusable containers but they don’t work for everything.
This lead me to find these amazing food wraps by Abeego they are simple, safe and eco friendly. Inspired by how nature keep’s food fresh in a breathable environment they believe natural ingredients are idea for keeping food alive. The wraps are made of hemp, organic cotton, beeswax, tree resin, and jojoba oil and are self-adhesive. The wraps heat up with your hands to help mold the wrap over the food item you are looking to wrap. When the wraps are cooled in the fridge they stay in place. You can hand wash them in cold water and dish soap and reuse over and over with good care they say the wraps can last a year. They have great tips on their site as to how to properly care for the wraps to get them to last. A pack of three wraps costs around $18 and they come in a pack with three different shapes.
Abeego is a small company based in Victoria, BC, Canada with great company standards, they have low waste and use the excess material from their company for business cards and to make twist ties. I have been using them for around a month and so far so good they work really great, I have found that they work really well on keeping avacados.
