The Beeswax Wrap Co. is an independent, female-led company producing handmade beeswax and plant-based wraps from their workshop in the Cotswolds, UK.
Founder Fran started making wraps in her kitchen in early 2017 in a bid to cut as much plastic as possible from everyday life. Over the next two years, the unique wax formulas were perfected through trial and error to create a range of handmade, plastic-free, planet friendly reusable wraps.
Made with natural ingredients such as beeswax or plant-based waxes, jojoba and pine resin, the wraps have natural antibacterial properties and are completely biodegradable. The 100% organic cotton is hardwearing and with careful use will keep going for around a year. If rewaxed they can last even longer.
The wraps can be washed in cold water, using a mild dishwashing soap and then hung up to dry. For full information, visit Caring For Your Wraps - The BeeswaxWrapCo
From the very outset, Fran and the team have been focused on putting the environment first in all areas of the business. Over the years this has included:
- Redesigning the packaging to remove the glue strips which had included an unrecyclable plastic-coated strip of paper.
- Designing packaging featuring holes that displays the fabric design and includes full instructions printed on the inside so that no additional leaflet is required.
- Producing packaging that is carbon balanced with the World Land Trust and is FSC certified, recycled and recyclable.
- Moving to a new (bigger) workshop that has solar panels which allows them to reduce the company’s reliance on fossil fuels.
The Beeswax Wrap Co. is proud to be B Corp certified – part of a network of businesses that balances purpose and profit. They are actively reducing their carbon generation with The Planet Mark - a sustainability certification that verifies and measures carbon and social data to reduce emissions and achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
