Why everyone should use Vegan Wax Food Wraps
One of the biggest sources of unsustainable landfill items all over the world is the plastic we use to pack our foods. Plastic wraps are made from potentially harmful chemicals including polyethylene, polyvinylidene chloride and other toxic additives. Plastic wraps, cling flims & bags are all unnecessary and harmful materials that are touching our food, leeching toxins and creating environmentally unsustainable materials destined for the waste cycle.
If you are vegan you should know that bee wax food wraps are not considered Vegan as they contain bee’s wax which is produced and derived from bees.
Even if you are not vegan, you don't want to support the techniques that are happening in the beekeeping operations where the bees are exploited for wax and honey.
Although bees aren't killed to harvest these ingredients, their habitat and resources are diminished. A thriving colony of bees may eventually die off if the harvesting process is not performed sustainably.
Vegan food wraps are a great alternative to cling film and beeswax food wraps that can help to reduce the use of plastic. Vegan wraps are ethically sourced without the use of any animal products and use quality natural ingredients that are good for you & the environment and most importantly it can be composted at the end of their life. Preserve your food and protect your family naturally with reusable vegan food wraps.
The warmth of your hands are enough for vegan wraps to seal around bowls, sandwiches, cheese, vegetables, fruits, salads, loaves of bread and leftovers. You can also use them for wrapping food that you want to put in the freezer. After use simply rinse the wrap in water with a little washing liquid, hang to dry and then use again. With proper care, the wraps would last for 12 months and can be composted when they need replacing.
However, you have to be aware of some things while using vegan food wraps. You cannot use a scourer or anything abrasive on the wax wraps as it could scratch the wax off. Never use your food wraps with excessively wet items such as raw meat or fish. Lastly, do not use the vegan wraps on hot food or let them be in the microwave or oven with any food.
Unfortunately, plastic use is still on the increase. But, people are becoming conscious about the impact that single-use plastics are having on our environment and the wildlife that inhabit it. Why not help the planet with small changes and make a big impact? Start using environmentally friendly vegan food wraps and let nature revive.
