DIY Beeswax Wraps

Food waste is much worse than you might expect.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 20 percent of what goes into municipal landfills is food.


But that doesn’t mean we need to rely on that nasty one-n-done plastic cling wrap.

Beeswax wraps are not only more sustainable but a lot cuter as well ;) 

These bad boys are compostable, colorful and set a great example for kids!

This is what you’ll need to get started:

  • Coconut Oil
  • Wax pellets (vegan or beeswax)
  • 100% cotton fabric
  • (optional) pine rosin

Enjoy this step-by-step tutorial on how to make your own!

If you find yourself pinched for time, we offer these hand-made beeswax wraps from Bare Vida.
