Reduce kitchen waste with Beeswax Wraps

Over the past year of working from home, exclusively, I’ve noticed just how much garbage I produce, and part of that is plastic wrap.

Like you, I’ve just been doing what was easy and convenient, but that’s probably how humanity got into this environmental mess we currently find ourselves in. Many people, myself included just chose convenience over what might be right.

Are we to blame, possibly, or maybe it’s just that big brands have so much power, they take up space on shelves, and on TV, radio and in online ads, so maybe we go with what we know? No matter why, what we do know now, is that continuing to be blissfully ignorant will end badly.

So, in a search to replace my bad habits, not just my use of plastic wrap, I started researching brands that made sustainable, eco-friendly, or green products. In my search, I came across beeswax wrap. Our interest was peaked, but I wanted to find a Canadian company that made them, and that I did. Say hello to Maple Tuque.

Made of Canadian beeswax, organic jojoba oil, these wraps are not only a neat way to reduce waste, while still keeping the convenience, they are also super cute. With a vast offering of prints and sizes, these easy to use beeswax wraps help keep your food fresh, they smell great, and they also really jazz up your fridge with a pop of colour.


The Maple Tuque Beeswax wraps come in:

– Large 15×12 inches (38 x 30.5cm)

– Medium 12×12 inches (30.5 x 30.5cm)

– Small 8×8 inches (20 x 20cm)


They are made with:

The Maple Tuque wraps are made of Canadian beeswax, organic jojoba oil, coconut oil, pine tree rosin and 100% cotton.



They work pretty much the same way as plastic wrap. Just unfold a wrap of the appropriate size, place it on the top of the container or bowl you want to cover and scrunch around the edges until you find a tight fit. If it’s a loose item, like cheese of a veggie, wrap it up like you would an untapped present.

Easy as 1, 2, 3.


For Care & Cleaning:

When it comes to cleaning, just hand-wash with cool soapy water and air dry before storing. To revitalise the beeswax wraps crumple it, and it will get stickier and softer, and be ready for yet another use.


So, if you’re looking to jazz up your fridge, create less waste, and buy from a small brand, you should check out the fun and fancy Maple Tuque Beeswax Wraps for yourself today. It’s not about changing your entire way of living in one day, but by making small changes individually, we can collectively make positive change globally.
