Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: What are the ingredients of your wraps?
A: We use 100% cotton fabrics & 100% pure Canadian beeswax

Q: Why beeswax?
A: Beeswax has a TON of great benefits, making it a healthy and safe alternative to plastic wrap.  including the following:

  • It’s natural, eco-friendly and non-toxic
  • It has antibacterial properties that help keep things clean and reduces risks of contamination
  • It’s thought to have anti-fungal properties that help to prevent the growth of yeasts and other fungi
  • It’s edible, so safe to use with food products
  • It’s waterproof so it keeps unwanted moisture out, while trapping food’s natural moisture in
  • It doesn’t go bad

Q: How do they work?
A: Use the heat of your hand to mould the wrap around a bowl or piece of food. Beeswax wraps are ideal for cheese, cut vegetables, fruit, snacks and anything you used to wrap in plastic. Beeswax wraps are not safe for the oven, microwave or dishwasher and are not recommended for use with meat or eggs.

Q: How long do the wraps last?
A: If taken care of properly, beeswax wraps last about one year from purchase.

Q: How do you clean & store the wraps?
A: Simply wipe the wraps clean with a damp cloth and store in a dry place. It’s not recommended that the wraps be used to wrap meats or eggs.

Q: When I am finished using my wraps, how do I dispose of them?
A: The wraps are fully compostable, so when you feel your wrap is ready to be tossed, simply throw it in your compost bin.

Q: How can I pick the patterns of the wraps online?
A: Use the drop-down menu on the shop page to select your patterns/colours for your order before adding it to your cart. If a colour doesn’t show up for a particular wrap size, it means we’re out of stock in that size. The patterns are shown in a gallery at the bottom of the shop page.

Q: What are shipping costs?
A: We offer flat-rate shipping of $6 to Canada and the United States. We’re happy to offer free shipping for orders over $75.

Q: What’s your return policy?
A: Since the wraps are a food product, we are not able to accommodate any returns.
