Beeswax food wraps are Mother Nature's answer to nasty plastic in your kitchen and lunchbox
If you're new to beeswax wraps, you're in for a treat!
Also known as wax wraps or bee wraps, Buzzcloth wraps work like clingfilm, except they're eco-friendly.
They don't leach chemicals into your food.
They're washable, reusable, and eventually compostable.
Not only that, they literally keep your food fresher!
They're the perfect plastic-free way to wrap up your food!
The bees knees of eco food wraps
Buzzcloth is hand-made using uncertified organic beeswax, undyed natural organic cotton, organic jojoba oil and tree resin.
The beeswax concoction infuses into the cloth, resulting in a 'cling cloth' which seals around your food with the help of a little hand-hug!
After you've used it, simply brush off crumbs and store for another day, or, it if needs washing, simply rinse in cold water, or wash like a dish in cold water with eco-friendly soap.
Air dry and store with your dishcloths in a kitchen drawer.
Buzzcloth can last from 3 months to over a year (sometimes more), depending on how often you use and wash it.
How do you know when time's up ? You'll know! The natural cloth will eventually lose it's sticky quality. When it's time to say good-bye, simply cut up as fire-lighters, or throw onto the compost.
No heat or meat
Buzzcloth shouldn't be used with any kind of raw or cooked meat, and doesn't like heat so avoid ovens, microwaves, dishwashers and hot water.
They are versatile little kitchen helpers, that's for sure!
Use it for cheese, fruit, bread, sandwiches, wraps, avo, cucumber, herbs.
Cover bowls containing salad, marinating meat or leftovers.
Make a little bag for cruditès or granola.
Perfect to take with you on picnics.
Very useful as a travel companion in your backpack, tent or caravan.
Opens tight bottle tops.
Perfect substitute for wine corks!

What some of our customers say
I just love Buzzcloth! It's delivered in a style that's as fresh as the food it wraps! And it works! When we had only one sheet in the house there was fierce competition for who got it in their lunchbox. The family pack has resolved all our problem. - A J Gets, Totnes, Devon
I used a Buzzcloth beeswax food wrap for Stilton cheese and stored it in my fridge for a week.
Usually, it would dry out and I'd have to cut off a bit but Buzzcloth preserved it so well that I could use it as is.
I love it and won't use anything else. - S Wood, London
In stark contrast to cling film or foil, I love the natural feel and smell of Buzzcloth. It works beautifully for anything non-liquid... I've used Buzzcloth to protect an apple from bruising in a school bag, to keep together tea bags from a broken box, and to wrap a pitta bread which was especially pleasing as the pretty flower-shape the Buzzcloth makes feels like I've wrapped a present! - A Link, Landscove
How to use your beeswax wrap
Just like in the old days, we use, wash and store, for the next time!
Whether you're wrapping a bowl of rising dough, a sandwich, half an avo or piece of cheese, Buzzcloth moulds around it with the help of a gentle hand-hug.
Rinse your wrap in cold water, with your hand or soft cloth. Or, immerse in cold water in a soap solution. Use alcohol-free dishwashing soap for best results.
When your bee wrap is dry, simply store in a drawer with your dishcloths, or roll up gently and place into a jar on the shelf within easy reach for the next time!
The earth needs help
Plastic is a fantastic, durable material but it's being used as for many single-use items such as clingfilm, disposable cups, wet wipes and straws.
This is causing a huge problem all over the planet, especially the oceans because that's where a lot of it ends up.
This kills fish, whales and dolphins who mistake it for food.
Single use plastic is something we can all eradicate from our homes, kitchens and lunchboxes, without any suffering!
Beeswax wraps are a great solution. Buy them, or make your own, but let's all work together to do our bit.
