It is so easy to get caught up in the commercial wave of excess at this time of year, feeling that everything has to live up to some perfect ideal of what Christmas should be, only to wake up on Boxing Day feeling exhausted relief that we got through it all!
My heart aches when I imagine the landfills filled with piles of wrapping, ribbon, broken plastic decorations, packaging and unwanted gifts the week after Christmas.
The good news is, it doesn’t have to be that way!
I wanted to share a few ideas to help you celebrate Christmas meaningfully and sustainably this year.
love what I do.
In a small but important way, I help people reduce their household waste, live more sustainably and care for our planet.
My journey started a few years ago when I was left feeling very disappointed with the reusable beeswax wraps I had bought. They no longer stuck and weren’t keeping my cheese fresh.
I’m not one to give up easily, so after months of research, trial and improvement I created wraps that worked really, really well. I was so thrilled and just had to share them with others to help them live a better life too.
For a long time I was emptying the mail from my mailbox every day and taking it straight to my recycling bin. The catalogues seemed to come in faster than we could flick through them and leading up to Christmas, the amount of junk mail that came through was just overwhelming!
Many people have heard the buzz about beeswax wraps but are still a bit nervous to try them.
How do they work? How do I use them? What’s the right way to clean them?
These are just some of the questions new customers ask me so I have put together a simple guide to using and caring for your Bee Green Food Wrap.
