Wrapping the Cake

The Beeswax Co is a socially responsible and environmentally aware Australian company based in the beautiful hinterland surrounding Byron Bay. Driven by a desire to reduce single use plastic and waste, owner Claire Mason, has developed a unique Beeswax Wrap product made with 100% GOTS (The Global Organic Textile Standard) organic cotton and GOTS certified fabric ink.

The beeswax wraps not only help you rid your household of single use plastics, but the combination of beeswax and natural resins and oils will help to keep foods fresher for longer. Use as a sandwich wrap for school or work lunches or wrap anything from cheese, bread, fresh herbs and greens, fruit and veggies to maintain freshness, or alternatively cover bowls and leftovers in the fridge.

With aesthetics in mind Claire partnered with Daniel Hend, a local indigenous artist, to create bespoke set of designs for the wraps. So far this collaboration has produced four different sets of designs including the Indigenous Range, Geo Range, Seven Seas Range and the Bush Tucker Range, and they will be available for sale at upcoming trade fairs and direct to consumers via the website.

Each wrap is screen printed and waxed by hand and are available in packs of 3 wraps including small 26cm x 26cm, medium 34cm x 34cm and large 41cm x 41cm sizes. They make beautiful gifts for people who love stylish food storage and design, and also a great everyday essential for the growing number of eco-conscious consumers.

The overuse of plastic cling wraps is clogging our waterways and harming the delicate ecosystem of our oceans, The Beeswax Co. has realised there’s an opportunity to help people make changes in our collective lifestyle to ensure a sustainable future. The broadcaster and naturalist David Attenborough said action on plastics should be taken immediately and that humanity held the future of the planet in the palm of its hands.
